Alluria Wines #168
Rooted in the Armenian tradition
Inspired by the family traditions of several centuries, we created Alluria wine. Hot climate, sandy and clay soil result in a perfect harvest, which, combined with the love and warmth of our hearts, ensures the high quality and the unique taste of our wine. In historic documents the name of Alluria is referred to as a river and mountain in the Timar region of Van. River Alluria had flown near our ancestor’s village Alyur.
Winemaking traditions of our family started a long time ago, from the days we were living in Alyur, where our family owned a big vineyard. We chose Alluria as the name for our wine in memory of our grandfathers, our history and our roots. The name of the village comes from the Alluria River, which flows around the village. Our logo consists of Latin letters M and W, a combination of which makes a beautiful Armenian pattern. We chose this logo to stress the Armenian origins of Alluria wines.
The winemakers of Alluria create their wines from local indigenous grape varieties grown in their own vineyards: Haghtanak, Karmrahyut, Khndoghni, and Voskehat. Haghtanak and Karmrahyut grow in the area where hot climate and sandy, clay soils provide perfect conditions for growing grapes. The best quality grapes are handpicked and processed in the cellar to make their unique red, white, and fortified wines.
