‘The world’s most dangerous wine’: an Armenian vintner’s daring dream

On December 22, 2023, the LA Times published an article featuring Mòläna, one of our flagship wines. Ani Duzdabanyan had this to say in her article:

Several years ago, Vahe Keushguerian, one of the pioneers of modern Armenian winemaking, had a daring idea — making wine in Armenia and presenting it to the world as a wine made in exile.

The wine was named Mòläna to honor 13th century Persian poet and scholar Rumi, who was often referred to as Moulana. Aged in stainless-steel tanks, the ruby-colored wine with notes of raspberry and cherry and hints of winter spices showcases the native terroir with a rich volcanic soil and high elevation.

“It’s the most dangerous wine in the world,” Dustin Wilson, the master sommelier and co-founder of Verve Wine says in the film “SOMM: Cup of Salvation,” the most recent in a series of films that began with Wise’s 2012 documentary “SOMM,” which tracked aspiring master sommeliers as they tried to pass the notoriously difficult wine exam.
