Winston Churchill said that the secret to a happy life was enjoying Havana cigars, Armenian brandy, and no sport. For 20 years until his death, he received 12 bottles of Ararat brandy every month.

Ararat brandy is one of the reasons that makes Armenia popular worldwide. The brandy factory also owns a museum and there is a brandy tasting ceremony at the end of the tour.

Locals often host trail runs, which attract many sports lovers worldwide. The Vineyard trail is the most popular one. This is the longest run event in Armenia and the route goes through trail paths of mountains and vineyards.
