Voskevaz Winery, one of the oldest wineries in Armenia. The winery was opened in 1932 in Voskevaz, at the foot of Mount Aragats, to grow fertile grapes.

The village of Voskevaz is located on the edge of a beautiful gorge of the Kasag River. The region has an ancient history of winemaking. Many jugs were found in the nearby church of St. John, which dates back to the 7th century.

The winery was founded in 1932, but its revival began in 2004 when Russian businessman David Hovhannisyan moved to Armenia and founded Voskevazi Winery LLC. The wines are made only from local grape varieties and are aged in Armenian oak barrels.

"I couldn't have imagined that I would see such a fabulous and creepily fascinating castle in Armenia. It felt like I was in some city from the past. The only disappointment was that we had to wait for 30 minutes or more because of one group of tourists, who were late. The guide talked about the history of the winery, the wine making techniques, and showed us the cellar where the wines are aged in barrels. He showed the rooms where many years ago the wine was poured directly from the ceiling from a special hole and then the wine was taken out with buckets. At the winery you can taste and buy Armenian wines that are made exclusively from Armenian varieties of grapes. During the tasting we met other tourists, had some interesting conversations and drank the most delicious wine, and the guide showed us how to assess the quality of wine in a glass, and how to drink it correctly.
By the way, we were told that most Voskewaz wines are not sold in supermarkets, they can only be found in the best restaurants and wine bars, and they are sold much cheaper in Voskewaz."
