Local Wine Tasting Baku
Azerbaijani wine is produced in several regions throughout Azerbaijan. Prior to 20th century communist rule, Azerbaijan had a thriving wine industry that dated back to the second millennium BC. Azerbaijan, considered to be one of the birthplaces of the vine, is very rich in grape varieties, not only for the production of table or technical grapes, but also wild ones. According to a study, more than 600 local and introduced grape varieties can be found in Azerbaijan today. Azerbaijan was one of the major wine producers of the Soviet Union. Not only was the production area much larger than today but also yields were much higher. After Mikhail Gorbachev’s “anti-alcoholism campaign”, the majority of vineyards were cleared ruining the sector. In the beginning of the transformation process, the wine sector was not revitalized. The revitalization of the wine sector has begun at the beginning of the new millennium when a number of new companies have been established. Right from the beginning, these new companies started to work with European experiences and technologies.
