VINEYARD

The main vineyards of the Voskeni winery farm with an area of about 22 hectares are located in Ararat plain, Armavir region (Sardarapat Memorial Complex) at the altitude of 1000 m above the sea level. The soil is limestone, stony and sandy. The average age of vines is about 75-80 years. The vineyard is buried during winter. The estate has several experimental sites. The first is 2 hectares with vines over 100 years old at the altitude of 1150 m, near the town of Ashtarak, where the soil mainly consists of volcanic rocks (tuff, pumice) and limestone. Three sites where Voskeni fully controls the viticulture during the vegetation period are in Vayots Dzor: the village of Rind (1300 m above the sea level), Aghavnadzor (1300 m above the sea level) and Khachik village (1900 m above the sea level). The main varieties on all sites are Areni and Voskehat. On the vineyard in Sardarapat there are plantations of Areni, Rkatsiteli and Voskehat. The methods of organic viticulture and manual harvesting are applied on all the plots.

                                                               WINERY

In 2016 the first stage of the winery construction in Sardarapat, designed to produce 50000 bottles, was completed. In late 2017, it is planned to expand the winery. The production uses the EnoVeneta membrane press for 3 tons, stainless steel tanks with temperature control. Wines are aged in Karabakh and French oak barrels. Experiments with karases are on the way.

The project is developed by Mkrtchyan family, continuing the work of the great-grandfather Smbat Meteossian, who planted his vineyard near Sardarapat in 1924 (the portrait of the founder is present on all wine labels). In 2016, winemaker Areg Khojoyan joined the project, who had been trained in Europe and California. The winery is also advised by the Semina Consulting oenologist Arman Manukyan. Alina and Ararat Mkrtchyan are responsible for management and development.
