Areni Wine Festival is one of the most favourite festivals in Armenia. Once you are in Armenia, make sure to visit this tasty festival where the mood is on the highest level due to the best atmosphere and the best wine in the whole world.
Armenia is one of the oldest countries producing wine. The first note about the oldest Armenian wine can be found in the works of Herodotus and Strabo. In 401–400 BC Greek armies were treated with wine in Armenia. Armenians have kept their wine in special clay pots named "karases".
The Areni winery is a 6100-year-old winery discovered in 2007 in the cave in Areni village. This winery is at least a thousand years older than the winery found in Judea and Samaria in 1963. The oldest shoe in the world was also found in this cave in 2008.
The Areni Wine Factory was founded in 1994 in Areni village (Vayots Dzor region, Armenia). The main purpose of the factory is to continue and enrich winemaking traditions in Armenia. Today Areni Wine Factory offers its visitors two different types of high-quality wine.
