In the summer of 2018, we decided to join forces in order to better share our passion for Armenian wines with Swiss wine lovers. Each and every one of the wines we carry is an expression of the wisdom of age-old tradition and history. It speaks of struggles for freedom and independence, and reflects the pristine beauty of nature. Each tasting is a unique experience.
Wine, music and art exhibitions… What more could one want to embellish everyday life? All three of these endeavours form a perfect harmony during Yerewines wine tastings. These take place several times a year in a number of Swiss cities including Basel, where Yerewines is based. Let us surprise you and take you on new paths to discover the 6000-year old history of Armenian winemaking. With Yerewines, you are sure to access the best that Armenian producers have to offer.
We are especially pleased to be the only authorised distributors of the Voskevaz winery in Switzerland. Voskevaz has diligently kept local winemaking know-how alive and produces wines that are on a par with the world’s most renowned grands crus, as is evident from the numerous prizes, medals and laudatory critiques they reap every year in international fairs such as the Mundus Vini Wine Award in Neustadt, the Concours Mondial in Brussels, the Decanter Fine Wine Encounter in London and the Catavinum World Wine & Spirits Competition in the Basque Country.
We have other partnerships with the Van Ardi and Zorah wineries, whose wines are equally successful in fairs and competitions, benefiting from international recognition.
The wines we carry have received high praise from wine editors and journalists. Read these reviews published in the Times, on the Independent.ie portal, in Wine & Spirits and Decanter magazines and the Financial Times in our « News » section.
In a word, Yerewines is synonymous with quality, intense flavour and history.
We offer wine tastings once a month (look under Events for details) to introduce you to the pleasures of Armenian wine. We offer a selection of Swiss and French cheeses and fresh bread to accompany the wine. We promise you a fascinating evening with animated talks, to the sound of classical music played by renowned artists. You can purchase the wine of your choice at the venue. Larger orders will be delivered. YereWines connects people. We look forward to meeting you.
We can also arrange tastings just for you and your friends. Are you planning a private or business-related apéro/event ? We can provide a catering service in addition to the wine, if required. We would be pleased to arrange an unforgettable individual guided tour of Armenia tailored to your needs, with or without visits to different producers.
