The festival featured Armenian and Artsakh wine makers presenting more than 200 wines. Local restaurants and cafes offered Armenian and international dishes to complement the wines. The event was accompanied by talented musicians, dancers, photographers, DJs, and designers. A lot of local singers, actors, and politicians were enjoying themselves with family and friends.
Surprisingly, the Prime Minister of Armenia, Nikol Pashinyan, joined the fun with his wife Anna and streamed live from the crowded street, telling his followers how excited he was and how well everything was arranged.

On the first day of the event, the weather was pleasantly nice and warm. A lot of people stayed longer than expected, tasting different wines and foods. The spirits were high, there were groups of people dancing, singing, and celebrating!
But the following day, it was raining cats and dogs. Still, the weather didn’t matter much for the wine lovers. They had umbrellas and were wearing raincoats, enjoying the event!
