Renowned global source for everything wine-related Decanter has published an article about Armenian wines.
Caroline Gilby writes in her article “The rebirth of Armenian wine, and bottles to try” that “Few corners of the world can rival Armenia’s rich winemaking history and a new, exciting generation of wines have emerged in the post-Soviet era”.
In particular, Caroline Gilby talked with Zorah founders Zorik Gharibian and Yeraz Tomassians, who started making wine in Armenia after the move from Italy.
“I’m here to find my roots, but I don’t just want to be the best wine in Armenia, I want world recognition,” said Gharibian.
