This wonderful tour begins with a visit to Khor Virap monastery, and then Hin Areni wine factory. You will be met in Yerevan and driven to your first destination, Khor Virap, the closest point to Mount Ararat. Khor Virap is Armenia's most famous pilgrimage site because it is directly associated with the adoption of Christianity. Christianity was adopted as a state religion in Armenia in 301 due to the efforts of Saint Gregory The Illuminator, who was imprisoned in the dungeon before converting King Trdat The 3rd to Christianity, and over which a church of Khor Virap monastery was built in the 17th century.
Following that, you will enjoy wine tasting at the Hin Areni wine factory, which is located in one of Armenia's oldest settlements and is well-known for its wines. Vayots Dzor and Areni village has been the cradle of Armenian winemaking for millennia. The Hin Areni wine factory welcomes the world to showcase the historical and indigenous Armenian grape varietals. The winery's historic winemaking traditions are well combined with cutting-edge modern equipment. The Hin Areni wine factory can process over 250 tonnes of grapes.
