Event details

Intermediate wine tasting

Turkey has been dubbed “the youngest of the oldest” wine producing countries, with wine having been produced in Anatolia for thousands of years. Today, the wine scene in Turkey is going through a renaissance.

While learning about Turkish wine in general, this discovery tasting will focus on two indigenous grape varieties - Narince (white) and KK (Kalecik Karasi). You’ll have the chance to taste eight wines from different regions of Turkey.
