The origins of Maran dates back to 1829–1830, when Grandma Maran immigrated with her family from Persia to Armenia's Vayots Dzor Province. In 1860, Maran's son Harutyun planted a vineyard in the village of Artabuynk, calling it Maran's Vineyard after his mother. Three years later, a semi-production winery was founded. After the collapse of the USSR it was re-established in Vayots Dzor in 1991. The firstborn of the company, "Noravank" wine was made in 1991 (3000 bottles). The company's vineyards are located in Vayots Dzor region and are currently being developed with organic technologies. The first certified organic wine was produced in 2021. The highest vineyard in the region is planted at an altitude of 2070 m above sea level. Since the establishment, Harutyunyan family has continued to convey family wimenaking secrets and skills from generation to generation, and at the same time creates modern, significant wine samples, both single-drinking and blends. Maran winery is one of the few that has not betrayed the traditional Armenian winemaking methods: the Black Areni vineyards, which are grown in the villages of Areni, Aghavnadzor, Malishka in Vayots Dzor region. The vineyards of Areni Noir are located in the villages of Areni, Aghavnadzor, Malishka of Vayots Dzor region. The winery also deals with other Armenian grapes as Kakhet, Tozot, Voskehat, Kangun, Khatun Kharji, as well as imported ones like Aligote and Chenin Blanc.
