For its Grante premium wines, Aznar cultivates grapes in vineyards situated in the Ismayilli region, in the very heart of Azerbaijan on the southern slopes of the Greater Caucasus range (high and middle mountain ridges and lowlands of the Achinohur and Alazan-Haftaran valleys). The natural environment of these places is unique, with sudden changes in temperature between sunny days and cool nights providing a perfect environment for correct ripening.
The history of the winery dates back to the 1960s, when a factory was set up in Goychay to produce juice from the region’s famously delicious pomegranates. The first managing director was Teymur Faradzh ogly Akhmedov, who wanted to make them known internationally. The products of this factory were supplied throughout the USSR and to other countries. In recent years Aznar has expanded its production geography and created new lines of juices and wines, which are sold in eco-friendly glass bottles.
