Koor Wines

The origin of Koor wine by Highland Cellars began in 2014 when a group of Armenian diasporan friends decided to climb Mount Ararat and in the course of this adventure vowed to contribute to the growing wine-making revival in Armenia. Made exclusively from the Armenian grape varieties as a tribute to the Armenian heritage, Koor embodies both the ancient secrets and the latest technologies of wine making and is making a worthy contribution to the recognition of Armenia as an ancient wine making country. To achieve these goals, Highland Cellars cooperates with Semina Consulting ,a company engaged in the modernization of the wine sector in Armenia and engages the assistance of high-class global wine experts. The name Koor is a tribute to Armenian riverboat craftsmanship and wine merchantry. The illustration on the label shows a scene from Herodotus’ book Histories .Armenian merchants used to travel from Armenia to Babylon down the Euphrates River in boats made of wood and animal hide with casks of palm-wood filled with wine. According to Histories, these boats were called Kur or Koor
