Armenia has a very rich and diverse viticultural heritage. We have founded these two nurseries in order to revive and propagate ancient and indigenous Armenian vitis vinifera grape varietals. We have done meticulous varietal selection, virus testing and planted both nurseries in fall of 2014. The next two years nurseries will be expanded by means of propagating cuttings from those nurseries, and by 2017 we hope to be able to offer cuttings from our varietals for replanting and commercial use.
