Basic Info

A wonderful journey into the world of wine began many years ago when Zorah founder Zorik Gharibian visited Armenia for the very first time. He returned powerfully impressed by the beauty and spirit of his ancient homeland. As he began to spend more time there, travel among its people and uncover its secrets and traditions, he came to realize that Armenia had a deep rooted wine culture which seemed to have all but disappeared after years of Soviet rule. A marvelous idea began to take shape and never one to follow tradition, Zorik changed his mind about buying a vineyard in Tuscany in favour of returning to his ancestral roots in Armenia. He decided to restore traditional viticultural values with a modern approach and create truly profound wines which would speak of this magical place. It took a dream, time, determination and a team of motivated professionals to make it all come together and after almost ten years of intense work the winery produced its first vintage.
