Founded in 1994, the Areni Wine Factory is among the oldest and best-established wine facilities in the area. The winery produces a selection of red, white, and pomegranate wines. Some 30,000 curious visitors have experienced its wines every year since 2012. Areni has been a family-run business since its founding and has garnered a number of awards and medals for its wines.

A tour of the factory includes a walk through the cellar where the wine ages in massive oak barrels, followed by a tasting of the winery’s selection of traditional and fruit wines. In an upstairs dining area, guests may order coffee or tea and watch a short video about Armenian winemaking traditions and the company’s history. An on-site lunch and a lavash-making workshop may be arranged with advance notice. A small craft shop offers souvenirs and handmade gifts, as well as a selection of wines for purchase.
