TRINITY CANYON VINEYARDS #176
The mysterious world of the Trinity Canyon Vineyards wine crafting
The story of the Trinity Canyon Vineyards began in 2009, when three (Trinity) enthusiastic and determined wine aficionados decided to step into the mysterious world of wine crafting. Assisted by an equally passionate group of winegrowers and winemakers, they established a unique vineyard in the Vayots Dzor Highlands, in the close vicinity of the world’s oldest known wine producing site dating back some 6100 years. Trinity wines are filled with faith, traditions and legends of Armenian winemakers that will always serve as a beacon for all the undertakings. As one of the Trinity Canyon Vineyards team members says, “open-mindedness is not a skull fracture”. Same values they are trying to apply in the vineyards, carefully handling and taking care of the grapes, which finally reflects in the Trinity Canyon Vineyards wine quality. Being on the way to complete organic viticulture and wine processing, the Team truly believes that only by respecting the traditions of Armenian wine crafting and moving towards more advanced winemaking technologies can they achieve their goals.
The region and projects of the Trinity Canyon Vineyards
The Trinity Canyon Vineyards is located in the Vayots Dzor province in the southeast of Armenia – the world’s first wine production. The perfect conditions for growing different grape varieties are the soil of the vineyards is volcanic with a lot of gravel and sand as well as the sun that shines an average of 250 days a year. Also the vineyards are located 1300 meters above the sea level. Not only winemaking decorates this wonderful place. These are some special projects. The “Museum” – creating a collection of special artifacts in collaboration with different Masters (Varpets) and collectors and “Aygi” is a research project of the history and traditions of Armenian wine.
