Armenia has a very rich and diverse viticultural heritage. We founded these two nurseries in order to revive and propagate ancient and indigenous Armenian vitis vinifera grape varieties. We have done meticulous varietal selection, virus testing and planted both nurseries in fall of 2014. These nurseries will continue to be expanded by means of propagating cuttings from these nurseries, in order to be available to the growing Armenian wine industry.
