New Book: Wines of Armenia

The long-awaited book Wines of Armenia: A Comprehensive Guide to Armenian Wineries and Winemaking by S. Margosian has finally been published. It is the first and the most comprehensive guide about Armenian wineries and winemaking, providing great detail about Armenian grapes, wine regions and wineries.

Wine has always been an integral part of Armenian culture and heritage, even before Christianity and into ancient times. Grapes and wine are embedded into the core of Armenia’s national identity. Recent discoveries have shown us that the world’s first production of wine began 6,100 years ago in the Areni Cave in Armenia. With such a compelling history, deep traditions and a full heritage exist here in plenty. Yet, the world has limited knowledge about this richness.

This book aims to close this knowledge gap and share the beauty and culture with the world. “If we don’t embrace the Armenian history of wine and winemaking, we can’t fully comprehend and evaluate wines in general,” said Margosian, “There will always be a part missing, and this book aims to fill that gap.” 

The book targets a broad audience including but not limited to history, travel and wine lovers all around the world. The 150-page book has been published in the English language and is available in electronic, paperback and hardcover formats on Amazon and at major bookstores in the United States, United Kingdom, Europe, Australia and New Zealand. All three formats of the book can be accessed through the following link.
