Armenian wine Koor from Highland Cellars has absorbed the centuries-old traditions of wine-producing Armenia and its creators' love for this land, where according to the Bible, Noah planted the first vine at the foothills of Mount Ararat. The successful launch of Koor wine production has been possible due to several factors: The great desire of its founders - the world's most populous region of the world; involvement in the manufacturing process, and the production of the wine.
Cooperation with Semina Consulting, a company engaged in the modernization of the wine sector in Armenia, has also made a significant contribution to the project. Koor has entered the Armenian wine market in 2015. Made exclusively from the Armenian grape varieties, as a tribute to the Armenian heritage, Koor embodies both the centuries-old secrets and the latest technologies of winemaking. Today, the market of wines has been actively expanding in the world, following a steadily growing demand for wine.
Despite the fact that the long-standing leaders of the wine production, such as Italy and France, keep on enjoying their positions on the international market, we believe that Armenian wine has a promising future and will find its market niche. In this aspect, Koor wine, produced from indigenous Armenian grapes, is a worthy contribution to the recognition of Armenia as an ancient wine-making country.
Koor Red is a traditional blend of indigenous Armenian varietals, grown in high-elevation vineyards of Vayots Dzor. The primary and signature grape – Areni – is elegant, fruity and subtle. It is well balanced with more tannic grape – Sireni – giving Koor its defined structure. The subtle mineralic notes come from the unique soil of the region – a combination of volcanic sedimentary and limestone. This wine is perfect for enjoyment on its own or pairs wonderfully with soft cheeses, light pasta dishes and white meats.
