“Wine Weeks in Armenia” Summer School program came to its end
The “Wine Weeks in Armenia” Summer School 2019 program came to its conclusion. It was the first year of the program with this concept. And we truly hope that this is also the beginning of something great for the participants. Our participants, who have Armenian roots but are from different countries, joined EVN Wine Academy students for a two-week wine business course as well as experienced the renowned Armenian hospitality. The footprints that the program has left to these people are immense. Now the ”summer schoolers” know much about the historic World of Wine and Armenian Wine Industry in general. The course was not just about theories, it was rather a very active practice including three-day trips in the main wine regions of Armenia. Participants got acquainted with the traditional dining experience and also with the cultural heritage of the first nation to adopt Christianity. Apart from getting knowledge on the global wine business, on how to implement strategies and create their niche market, students had a two-day master class on the sensory evaluation and introduction to Armenian wines. During all this time two great teachers have accompanied the students: Professor Jon Hanf from Geisenheim University in Germany (Wine Business) and Artem Parseghyan, Chief Winemaker at Trinity Vineyards, Armenia (Wine Fundamentals).
