Current evidence suggests that wine originated in West Asia including Caucasus Mountains, Zagros Mountains, Euphrates River Valley, and Southeastern Anatolia. This area spans a large area that includes the modern day nations of Armenia, Azerbaijan, Georgia, northern Iran, and eastern Turkey. Ancient wine production evidence dates between 6,000 BC and 4,000 BC, and includes an ancient winery site in Armenia, grape residue found in clay jars in Georgia, and signs of grape domestication in eastern Turkey.By studying grape genetics, José Vouillimoz (a grape “ampelologist”), identified a region in Turkey where wild grape vines closely resemble cultivated vines. This research supports a theory that a convergence zone between cultivated and wild vines could be the origin place of winemaking.
Today's Modern Turkey makes some of the best wines of the world as it did last 8000 years. We proudly make Anatolia's best wines in our vineyards all around the country. We began to select and plant our own vineyards in the 1990s, using our intimate knowledge of the multiple Anatolia microclimates, soil variations and the many subtle growing factors which inﬂuence the characteristics of the grape and the resulting quality of wine. We planted Pinot Noir, Shiraz, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc in our Vineyards.
Known for its clay soils and cool climate, Our vineyards create perfect conditions to allow these varieties to develop their complex ﬂavors. We also planted world famous Turkish grapes like Kalecik Karasi, Okuzgozu, Narince, Sultaniye in our Vineyards in the areas with a perfect environment to develop the rich berry ﬂavor and intense fruit color that make these wines some of the best in the world.
We source only the best grapes from our vineyards to bring you memorable wines with character and distinction.
