Wines of Turkey
The umbrella body representing the Turkish wine sector is the result of a strategic partnership between Turkey's leading wineries. The organization Wines of Turkey was founded in 2008. Its
mission is to develop the wine market and culture of Turkey and to increase exports by making “Wines of Turkey” a generic brand associated with quality wine. For further information:

In Turkey, where wine has been cultivated for 8.000 years, there are more than 800 indigenous grape varieties. Most important among the indigenous white wines are Emir, Narince and among
the reds Kalecik Karası, Öküzgözü and Boğazkere. Of the international varieties, mostly Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz (Syrah) are grown.
Annually, around 75 million liters are produced, of which four percent are exported, which constitutes a volume of three million liters and a value of about eight million Euros.
