Armenia Tree Project To Host Wine Tasting Fundraiser in Arlington


ARLINGTON, Mass. — Armenia Tree Project (ATP) has partnered with Storica Wines and Anoush’ella restaurant, to present an evening of Armenian food and wine in support of the organization’s work in Armenia, on Saturday, September 23, at 6 p.m., at the Armenian Cultural Foundation.

ATP invites everyone to attend this benefit at the beautiful Armenian Cultural Foundation, located in a historic building on the banks of the Mystic River. Guests will enjoy a variety of wines from Armenia presented by Storica’s sommeliers. Storica is an Armenian wine import company in the US and carries Armenian wine companies such as Keusch, Zulal, Shofer, Oshin, Van Ardi and Voskevaz. Appetizers will be provided by Anoush’ella, whose translates to “may it be sweet.” Owners Nina and Raffi Festekjian have created a menu based on traditional recipes found in an Armenian household, that incorporate the fresh, balanced ingredients and complex flavors of the Eastern Mediterranean.

ATP Executive Director Jeanmarie Papelian will share details about the organization’s work in Armenia and Artsakh, which includes plans to plant its 8th millionth tree by the end of 2023. As the organization prepares for its 30th anniversary in 2024, this benefit will kickstart a series of outreach events through the U.S. to engage and educate supporters of ATP.
