Turkey is the oldest winegrowing country in the world – 11.000 years after the beginning of the Vitis Vinifera in Eastern Anatolia, the country between Europe and Asia is causing furors with excellent and exciting wines. With a record participation of 15 wineries (Buyulubag, Chamlija, Diren, Doluca, Kavaklidere, Kayra, Kocabag, LA, Pamukkale, Selendi, Sevilen, Suvla, Urla, Vinkara and Yazgan) Turkey presents itself on ProWein 2013 on 190 square meters in Hall 6 (booth B 61 & B 73). Grape varieties like Emir, Narince, Kalecik Karasi Öküzgözü, and Bogazkere may be real tongue-twisters, but wine experts with sensitive noses and palates all agree that some of the world’s most unusual and interesting wines come from Turkey.
On the first two days of the fair, Master Classes with selected Turkish wines are taking place at the booths of Vinum, Falstaff and Meininger in Hall 6.
