The residents of Helenendorf, now Goygol, laid the foundations for Azerbaijan’s modern wine industry. It all began in 1860, when a local man called Christopher Vohrer expanded his vineyards into a family business which within a generation grew into Azerbaijan’s largest wine producer, and the first to export to Europe. Together with another winemaking family called the Hummels, the Vohrers helped forge a full-fledged wine industry whose legacy can be experienced by visiting the Goygol Winery. Tastings take place in the original German cellar dating back to 1860, although go easy if you plan to taste all 15 types of wine and brandy in just one sitting!
