KEUSH 2013 Blanc de Blancs Extra Brut Sparkling Wine Armenia
Keush is a story of resilience and commitment to the land. Crafting traditional method sparkling wine under extreme conditions in Khachik village.
Keush is a tale of life’s journey. A journey of adventure and daring to pursue the extreme. Armenians, with more of their kin living all over the world than in Armenia say that they are place conscious not place bound. But when Vahe Keushguerian visited Armenia in 1998, he found himself being drawn towards connecting his people and his life with the land. Having understood the potential of the soil and terroir for great winemaking, Vahe embarked on a journey to rediscover Armenia’s ancient grape growing regions. It was a village 1,750 m above sea level, on the edge of a conflict war zone, where he decided to set roots for a new generation of Armenian winemaking.
