Old-World Elegance, New-World Style

Fated for Greatness

By History and Nature

For thousands of years, Armenian vinetenders have fastidiously cultivated the ancient Areni Noir grape in the highlands terroir of Vayots Dzor. To make wines in this place, from this grape, is to follow the clear path of destiny.

The variety’s thick skins and naturally low pH make for tremendous aging potential. On the palate, the wines are harmonious thanks to medium-firm tannins, generous acidity, and appealing red and black fruit notes.

Methodical and Skilled

A Modern Approach

While the grape variety and land are both ancient, winemaker Alex H. learned his contemporary winemaking technique at the University of California, Davis, as well as during travels in the Napa Valley and beyond.

We harvest early in the morning to capture acidity, and collect the fruit in small bins to preserve the delicate structure of the grape clusters. After initial sorting and destemming, we do an additional berry sort by hand to select the most pristine and ripe individual grapes.
