Here are some photos I took while at the Areni Wine Festival last Saturday, October 5.

It was the first time I had ever gone and it was a blast. A highly recommended event to attend next year. Too bad it wasn’t publicized well, I only heard that it was happening last weekend through a friend, I actually thought it had already come and gone. There was plenty of wine to be sampled, both from local winemakers who’ve kept the tradition going in the family and the larger wineries. I focused on sampling some of the homemade vino, but the samplings offered by Maran Winery were very nice, especially the 2002 Areni of Malishka.

When we arrived there was lots of smoke, we thought something had caught fire before we realized that several vendors were barbecuing kebab. I think that was the only thing available to eat besides pumpkins, quince and grapes.

We arrived at the center of the festival just in time to hear the winners of the winemaking contest being announced. We managed to track down Haig Stepanian, the second place winner at his wine stand but the champion disappeared in the crowd after he walked away with his prize.
