Momik Wines reviews
A couple of weeks ago, my partner Araz and I drove to Areni on a whim, with no particular destination in mind. It had been a few years since we had been there and figured it would be a nice day trip..... more »
We took a taxi from our hotel in Yerevan and two hours later found ourselves on a twisting dirt road, surrounded by fields and mountains, on the outskirts of Areni. Google Maps told us to keep going..... more »
The best way to support small businesses while traveling in Armenia: DRINK THEIR WINE! The owners Nver and Narine are adorable people with a real passion for winemaking – it's been a family tradition for several generations. Their wine, Momik, is among the best I've tasted in Armenia (they have all kinds: red, rose, white, and even a homemade version of the red wine that's pretty decent!). Note that they have clean modern toilets (very important especially if you plan on drinking), and the price of tasting also includes a very tasty light lunch (salads, bread, homemade cheese). Overall great stop to make in Areni.
If you're looking for an authentic, local wine experience in Armenia, Momik Wines is the place to go! Not only does Momik make high-quality fine wines using indigenous grape varietals (the rosé is one of the best I've ever had!), but the location of their WineCube in their village where you'll taste their wines is nothing short of magical. The WineCube offers stunning views of the cliffs that surround Areni village, and if that wasn't enough, you'll munch on a delicious, locally-sourced foods (homemade cheeses, salads, cured meats, pickled veggies, fresh breads... perfect pairings for the wines you'll taste). Owners Nver and Narine are absolutely lovely. They make the Momik WineCube the magical place that it is. You won't regret coming here!
