On March 25 the tasting of Armenian wines Karas and Kataro took place during the 23rd international exhibition “Travel and Tourism” MITT 2016 at the Expocenter, which was held by the Head of the Sommelier Union and experts of Russia Arthur Sarkisyan at the stand dedicated to the Republics of Armenia and NKR.
MITT is one of the largest tourist exhibitions in the world and annually gathers under its roof the largest players from Russia and other countries of the world. This year, one of the pavilions was assigned to the national stand of the Republics of Armenia and Nagorno-Karabakh. As these tourist destinations are now very popular, the organizers of the exhibition wanted to introduce visitors not only to representatives of the tourism sector, but also to tell about cultural, historical and national characteristics.
To this end, the “New Wine Company” was invited along with Arthur Sarkisyan to conduct tasting of Karas and Kataro wines – two outstanding representatives of Armenian winemaking.
Karas vineyards are located on the fertile soil of the Ararat Valley, where the renowned winemaker Mariano Vignoni skillfully combines the pale European and local varieties of grapes. Thanks to this, a unique wine is born, recognized by connoisseurs around the world.
The uniqueness of Kataro wine is in the use of local indignous grapes. It is a small family winery, in which traditions and secrets of erecting wines and creating wines are transmitted from generation to generation.
