Shofer rosé is made with Areni grapes sourced from century-old mountainside vineyards in Vayots Dzor. It’s made using the direct press method. Dry and highly aromatic, this refreshing rosé is the perfect introduction to wines from Armenia. This Areni rosé is grown in volcanic soils and on ungrafted vines, resulting in a wine of real freshness and character. Shofer rosé embodies the rich, red-berried nature of Areni, Armenia’s leading red grape variety. Filled with aromas of cherry and strawberry, the palate is refreshing, dry and packs a real punch in terms of flavor.
Shofer, the Armenian word for “chauffeur,” features the emblematic Soviet-era
Lada car, used near-exclusively by the country’s cabbies. Like in many countries, these drivers are a lively bunch: equal parts welcoming, efficient, boisterous, and opinionated. They take pride in showing newcomers the richness of their homeland, and in facilitating everyday life in Armenia’s towns and cities. Like the Shofers,
our wines are made to transport adventurous spirits to regions unknown and to celebrate the new and memorable.
