We are an independent Turkish wine importer and wholesaler based in beautiful Warwick, the heart of England. For 7 years we have traded as a wine bar, and recently opened our doors to our customers as wine retailers too!
Our offering is focussed on boutique, small, family run wine producers who have a passion for what they do. We work closely with Chamlija Winery, Chateau Kalpak, and Akin Gurbuz, which specialise in organic natural wines, Turkish whites, Turkish reds and Turkish rose wines.
Proud to be promoting Turkish producers and grapes like Narince, Papaskarasi, Kalecik Karasi; we also provide European grape varieties including Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Grenache, Shiraz, Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Alberino, Viognier.
Today, Turkey owns the fifth-largest vineyard acreage in the world, and is globally ranked sixth for grape production. Within the winemaking industry, the Wine Institute ranks Turkey 45th in the world, just ahead of Belarus, India, Cuba.
In a recent years Turkish grapes have grown in popularity. These include Kalecik Karasi (meaning: black from the small castle), a medium bodied grape most similar to Pinot Noirs, and Papaskarasi (meaning: Priest's Black), a very old Thracian grape renowned for producing, sharp, yet elegant, fruity wines. The best known Turkish white wine grape is Narince (meaning: delicately), which offers floral notes, and produces a medium to full bodied wine with a balanced good acidity, similar to Chardonnay.
