As the owner of the Gevorkian Winery says, “Winemaking is a divinely-given opportunity to create eternal values”. And those values are poured out in the created wines. The wines of the ARIAC trademark were created to continue the traditions of ancient winemakers using the “Kakhani” method, that winemakers have revived from the ancient Armenian technology. The “Kahani” method is a tribute to the skill and patience of the ancient Armenian winemakers who developed their own method of making wine from dried grapes.
ANAIS is the first Armenian ice wine, the pearl of the noble-sweet wines of Gevorkian Winery. The wine is named after the ancient Armenian goddess of love and fertility.
The Gevorkian collection of the amphora wines are made according to the ancient technology, aged for 6 months in ancient Armenian amphoras – karas. This is the ancient Armenia monks, who produced wines according to this ancient technology, the main difference of which is the fermentation and aging of wine in clay amphorae – karas. Fermentation in karas allows the fermentation process to take place at lower temperatures, the wine turns out to be elegant, velvety, with the complex aromas.
