Areni is among 15 best wine routes around the world collected by CNN. Landing on Biblical Mount Ararat, Noah planted the first grape seed on the base of the mountain and started the men’s longest journey of wine making in Armenia.
Armenian wine customs and traditions are as old as the country and the nation itself. Recently, archaeologists found a wine making facility that is 6,100 years old. It is located in Areni village, where 6,100 years later Armenians still produce wine from the same sorts of grapes by the same recipe.
