Wine Ratings

22+ years /  Tens of thousands of Turkish Lira spent  /  50+ Trips Around Turkey  /   100's of hours wine debating.  I've been dripping red wine on my white sport shirts for a long time, along the way, I've tasted the vast majority of Turkish manufacturers and grapes.  Here are some of my thoughts on some notable and maybe avoidable wine bottles you may encounter or want to find.

'The mix of landscape, culture, history, archaeology and wine in Turkey is unparalleled.'
