Very good idea of activity for an evening in Yerevan

We had a great time discovering Armenian wines and products. Aram, our guide made us spend an excellent evening in 3 places with different and friendly atmospheres. It is cultivated and interesting and has answered our questions both culturally and gourmet. We tasted 8 different wines and discovered the young Armenian oenology with a lot of pleasure. At In Vino, the tasting was led by a young talented sommelier. We are very satisfied with this original experience.
