WORLD'S OLDEST WINES
Karas means "amphora" in Armenian, a sacred wine-making clay vessel used here for 6000 years.
An Armenian Family's journey
Eduardo Eurnekian and Juliana Del Aguila Eurnekian - uncle and niece - are responsible. for the premium vineyard property Bodega Del Fin Del Mundo, in Neuquén, Argentina.
Together, they've been making wine for more than a decade in Patagonia, a region known for its wines of origin, and shoulder to shoulder they founded Karas in Armavir, whose volcanic terroir is equally unique.
Volcanic soils ensures
a singular identity
Imagine an omnipotent snow-capped mountain that in its previous life as a volcano would unexpectedly release its wrath.
Today, Mount Ararat’s ancient rage has come to benefit Karas Wines.
These black volcanic soils are extremely conducive to growing healthy vines whose grapes have a fantastic character and produce a marked identity.
Wines with origin
By respecting - and rescuing - the past, we can make Armenian wines for the future. Driving around Armavir, you might see neglected karases in gardens or vineyards. One of the winery’s missions is to recycle these glorious clay wine-making gems, restoring them in order to ferment and age 21st-century wines.
