FREE shipping on 6 or more
Koor White is pure Voskehat – it is an indigenous grape, grown and cultivated in Armenia for millennia. This variety is vintage driven and can bring a wide array of aromatic bouquets depending on the year. This year`s vintage is extremely tropical, with hints of pineapple and mango. The signature and subtle mineralic notes come from the unique soil of the region – a combination of volcanic sedimentary and limestone. Koor White can be enjoyed on its own or paired wonderfully with most cheese platters, appetizers, seafoods and fruit or vanilla-based light desserts.
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 Bible, Noah planted the first vine at the foothills of Mount Ararat. The successful launch of Koor wine production has become possible due to several factors: the great desire of its founders - the natives of Armenia and their friends, to preserve the local winemaking traditions as well as to contribute to the revival of wine-drinking culture of one of the oldest wine regions in the world; involvement of high-class experts to the production, each of whom was responsible for a particular stage of wine production, starting from the selection of grapes and the area of its growth to the manufacturing techniques and wine labels design.
Cooperation with Semina Consulting, a company engaged in the modernization of wine sector in Armenia and providing support for marketing management, has also made a significant contribution to the project. Koor 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 the steadily growing demand for wine – a glass of high quality wine for a good dinner or lunch seems to be nowadays as desirable as never.
Despite the fact that the long-standing leaders of the wine production, such as Italy and France, keep 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, can make a worthy contribution to the recognition of Armenia as an ancient wine-making country.
