Storica is Synonymous with Fine Armenian Wine.
Storica Wines is an Armenian wine import company in the US.
We are here, of course, to drink our wine. But we are also here to celebrate the soul, the history, and the song of Armenia.
Storica Wines is ushering in the most exciting new category in the wine world, through a set of brands representing the finest quality and expression of Armenia’s rich heritage and renaissance in winemaking.
With each bottle sold, we aim to share Armenia’s story as a burgeoning authority in wine and its history as the birthplace of wine with consumers in the United States. Our wines express indigenous grapes grown 6,000 years ago, and they mirror the country and our point of view – full of life, resiliency, and familiar yet unique taste.
Storica’s team has an undying focus on the mission driven nature of its work — we believe that, for every bottle or glass of wine we sell in the US, we are turning a new person’s attention to a little known place in the world that has historically been known for attacks on its land and culture from its nearby neighbors, the most recent of which occuring in Fall 2020 with Azerbaijan’s attacks on the region of Artsakh with the assistance of Turkey.
By helping Armenia resonate in the hearts and minds of US consumers through wine, our hope is that this could help the world recognize Armenia for the beautiful place it is and the culture it represents — and as future conflicts occur, that Armenia will have more allies in the form of those who enjoy its wine with friends and family.
Our team is singularly focused on bringing our wines to as many “hands and mouths” as possible in the US: join us in raising a glass and exploring the beauty of Armenian wine!
We present to you Armenian wine. Welcome.
