George Clooney and Ruben Vardanyan visit ARARAT Museum in Yerevan

On April 22, international guests opened their weekend in the nation’s capital for the inaugural ceremony of the Aurora Prize for Awakening Humanity by visiting the Yerevan Brandy Company and its renowned museum dedicated to the legendary Armenian ARARAT Brandy.

Co-Chair of Aurora Prize Selection Committee George Clooney together with Co-Founder of the Aurora Prize initiative Ruben Vardanyan were joined by many other special guests as they toured the ARARAT Museum and acquainted themselves with this integral component of the heritage and culture of Armenia.

Guests were particularly moved by learning the story of Markar Sedrakyan, the legendary Master Blender of the Yerevan Brandy Company. A survivor of the Armenian Genocide of 1915, he used the most painful experience of his early life to build upon his inner strength and achieve great success in both his professional and personal life.
