Overview of the Wine

Keush winery was created by Vahe Keushguerian with a desire to create a product that married extreme high elevation farming and un-grafted ancient varietals. The vineyards are planted on rich volcanic soil. It is an opus with a 6000 year origin. The vineyards are positioned 500 metres from the Armenian/Azeri border and at 1800 meters are the highest in the country and among the highest in the world. Keush is a pioneer in making a Méthode Traditionelle sparkling wine from indigenous Armenian grape varietals.

Winemaker Arman Manoukian was born and raised in the wine region of Vayots Dzor. Arman received his BA and MA degrees in Viticulture at the Yerevan State Agrarian Institute and then went onto continue his education at the Viticulture and Enology School of Montpellier, France. He has been the chief winemaker for Keush since its inception in 2013. Jerome Barret is consulting winemaker. He has extensive experience working in Champagne, having worked as cellar master for two major champagne houses; Nicolas

Feuillatte and Champagne Boizel.

Grapes sourced from Vayots Dzor province in Armenia. The vineyards are un-grafted, 60- 100 years old. Located between 1500- 1800m above sea level.
