"Dark ruby in the glass, this wine proffers aromas of black cherry and milk chocolate. It fills the mouth with integrated flavors of cherry, cranberry, green bell pepper and smoke that are encased in a network of silky tannins, culminating in a lingering cherry finish."

Family HistoryReturning back to his roots, both physically and metaphorically, founder and winemaker, Varuzhan Mouradian and family moved from California to Armenia. Having fallen in love with wine, he knew he had developed a passion for making wine he couldn't ignore. Van is an ancient capital of Armenia with rich winemaking history, where the families ancestors are from. The winemaker and family named the winery Van Ardi, meaning "sun of Van".

Plot Scouting - After Scouting various winemaking area in Armenia, Van Ardi settled on an exquisite plot in Ashtarak, an ancient winemaking region of Armenia. The land was bare and filled with stones and boulders, but its soil type (volcanic), slope and position created a tangible terroir that evoked a sense of promise!
