Discover Turkish wines in London
Wines of Turkey will be bringing the largest ever number of producers together in their biggest trade and press tasting in London this October. 18 producers will show a diverse mix of over 100 wines, from large and small wineries alike, all under one roof, featuring wines made from Turkey’s many indigenous varietals, to better known international ones.
Sarah Abbott MW, who is hosting a masterclass at the tasting, comments: “In the last five years, the buzz over the quality and vibrant personality of these unique wines has been growing in the UK, helped by what we like to call the ‘Ottolenghi’ effect – the growing appreciation for the foods and drinks of the Eastern Mediterranean, and beyond.
“When selecting the wines for the masterclasses, we were hugely excited about the quality of the wines coming out of Turkey at the moment”, continues Abbott who, together with Peter McCombie MW, will be conducting an overview of Turkish wines during a tutored tasting of 9 wines at the event.
The following producers will be present at the tasting:
And Tunalı (Kavaklıdere), Arcadia, Barbare, Büyülübağ, Diren, Doluca, Gali, Gülor, Kastro Tireli, Kayra, Mozaik, Pamukkale, Paşaeli, Selendi, Sevilen, Urla, and Vinkara.Wednesday 14 October 2015 Haberdasher’s Hall 18 West Smithfield London EC1A 9HQ Tasting: 10.00 – 16.30
