Armenian People Celebrating Day of Wine

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:

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.Armenian People Celebrating Day of Wine
