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.
“Every loudspeaker was competing with all the others to see who is louder”, says Petr.
Then there was a weightlifting contest.
“Those were the Armenian Beatles”, recalls Petr.
Hope you liked the journey of Petr, thanks to him for this opportunity!
