About Van Ardi Wines

These dynamic wines from a boutique operation near Ashtarak, Armenia grew out of a passion project and into a global success story. In 2008, California-based accountant Varuzhan Mouradian followed his dream to study oenology and vineyard management at U.C. Davis, and later to make wine in the ancient landscape where his ancestors once lived. The label’s name derives from the historical Armenian capital where Mouradian traces his lineage.

Van Ardi wines are certified organic through Ecoglobe, and grown in rocky volcanic soils nearly 3,500 feet above sea level. The range includes dry red wines made with Areni, and the team’s thoughtful winemaking includes balanced use of oak aging.

Certification Am - BIO - 112

“I am married to the vine and the wine is born from that love.”

Varuzhan Mouradian, Founder
