Armenian People Celebrating Day of Wine

Posted on October 8, 2014 by tim

On the first Saturday of October, the people of an Armenian mountain village gather for a wine and food festival, taking out their wine stored in the cellars. Lots of food and wines. Most of the people you’ll see still speak Russian as a tradition from USSR. So Russian photographer Petr has visited the event, and here we can see how it usually is over there:

He says there is a LOT OF food.

Old people have brought special tubes to connect to the wine in the large tanks where it’s being stored from the last year. “Every owner of a tank thinks he is obliged to give you a glass of wine”, says Petr.

The barbecue smoke makes a smoke-wall. 

Even policemen were invited and treated to wine and food.

The red thing in this photo is a furnace. Here women prepare LAVASH – an Armenian flat bread.

“Every loudspeaker was competing with all the others to see who is louder”, says Petr.
