Maran/Մարան is the first wine enterprise in the independent Armenia, 30 years officially in the market, with an almost 200 year history of family traditions. The core values of the company are not only traditions but also experimentation as the founder of the company Avag Harutyunyan and his son Frunz are oenologists and wine scientists. They currently sell locally and export to France, Netherlands, Czech Republic, Russia, USA and most recently to Australia.
They work both with indigenous, ancient Armenian varieties (Areni, Voskehat, Khatoun Kharji) as well as international ones (Aligote, Chenin Blanc, Malbec). The wines range from fresh young easy to drink wines to barrel aged, full bodied, reserve. Next thing on their agenda: organic wines (they are in transition, first vintage will be released in 2022) and amphorae wines.
