Tozot mainly grows in old vineyards of Vayots Dzor and belongs to the oriental eco-geographical group of grapes. Tozot is characterized by dense, conical bunches that vary in size, and black, slightly elongated (or ovate) medium-sized berries. The skin is of medium thickness, covered with heavy bloom, for which it derives its name (meaning dusty). Wines from Tozot are granted with a unique flavor profile and pleasant crispness. Because of it’s scarcity, Tozot is mainly used in blends with other exclusive Armenian grape varieties, especially with Areni.
