"Seated in the shadows of sacred Mount Ararat, Armavir and its venerable terroir made it a natural choice to begin the Karas story.
History is rooted in this project, but Karas Wines is keenly aware of the future and the need for responsible stewardship. Thanks to Armavir's special terroir-fvourable organic soil and a singular climate accompanied by thermal amplitude-Karas wines applies a sustainable and organic philosophy in line with Bioma practices to ensure its vineyards are healthy and remain chemical additive free."
"The Blend has an intense red color. Elegant red fruits and berries along with subtle vanilla and chocolate notes. Very elegant and velvety with great acidity and sweet tannins. It is very persistent, complex and elegant. Best served with red meat, hard cheeses and charcuterie."~Winery Notes

"Karas is a newly established winery in the West of Armavir Region. Located in the Ararat Valley, between Mount Aragats and Mount Ararat. Armavir is the smallest and the most densely populated region in Armenia. The convenient location and the favourable climate have allowed this thriving region to become the epicentre of agricultural development. Aside from its highly agricultural background, Armavir also holds a rich historical and cultural legacy, thus attracting thousands of natives and tourists each year to well-known sites, such as the Sardarapat Battle Memorial, the religious and spiritual centre of the Armenian Apostolic Church: the Holy City of Echmiadzin. In 2003 the pursuit for developing an inspiring project led us to discover these lands rich in minerals and suitable for high quality wine making. The innovation and technology were key factors in achieving our objective, and as from 2010, the production of Karas allowed us to have our first commercial production and so define a new way in the production of Armenian wines"
