Finally, Vouillamoz selected Areni, a native Armenian red, which he stated is “a fantastic variety” as well as the country’s best grape.

Indeed, such is the grape’s quality it has attracted famous international wine consultants to Armenia, including Alberto Antonini, Michel Rolland and Paul Hobbs.

Could Areni be the Cabernet of the future? According to Vouillamoz, it’s quite possible.

    Patrick,
    Great article. It’s exciting to think that there are many lifetimes of exploration and development in the ever expanding wine world. One item to add- Counoise is being grown at Unionville Vineyards in New Jersey as well with great success. Rhone varieties, along with some Austrian varieties (perhaps the flagship varieties of the future in the past) have a home in NJ.
