The last vintage of this iconic Artsakh wine some of which were salvaged by the Avetissyan Family from occupied lands.
In the south of Artsakh there is an ancient temple overlooking mountains and stone gorges, dotted with islands of mountainous flowers and indigenous fragrant herbs. Situated above the clouds and eagles’ nests this temple embodies a man’s desire for perfection and nobility. The temple is called Kataro. The way to it is long and arduous, and it is not coincidental that the Avetissyan Family named this wine after this incredible place surrounded by magnificent nature and weathered by warm winds.
Domaine Avetissyan owns 10 hectares of our historic vineyards, where Khndoghni, Artsakh’s best known indigenous grape variety is cultivated. Khndoghni is grown on the slopes of Togh at an elevation of 600-700 meters in a predominantly clay-based soil.
Khndoghni, or Sireni, as natives often call the grape, is powerful and deep, rich in tannins and gives the wines extraction and expressiveness, as well as structure.
