Zara Kechechyan

Who is Zara?
Zara is the junior winemaker at Karas Wines in Armavir, Armenia.

Why/how did you get into wine? 
Passion drove me to leave my first career in Social Psychology and Human Resources and go into gastronomy and finally winemaking, in 2015. Yet after 6 years of study and work, 7 harvests in 2 continents I still feel the eternal “secrets” winemaking has to discover.

Who’s a woman you look up to and why? 
Sarah Perez of Mas Martinet, Maggie Harrison of Antica Terra, and many others. Women who find their own path and believe in the beauty if wine.

What’s your superpower? 
My endless trust in my intuition.
