Suvla is a family owned wine producer and viticulture company located in Eceabat along the Çanakkale Strait also known as Dardanelles in the historical Peninsula of Gallipoli. Suvla is named after a bay close to family vineyards in the north coast of the Aegean Sea in Turkey. The vineyard was planted in 2003 by the couple Pınar and Selim Zafer Ellialtı, and named ‘Bozokbağ’ at the first harvest in 2006 after their newborn son Bozok.

Suvla crafts wines subtle yet rich in character with elegant and exquisite finishes to complement an extensive range of dishes. These wines exhibit great character as they are situated in a spectacular geographical setting and on a land full of history. In this historical region, the relationship between vines and soil has been going on for centuries.

Focusing on quality and working with a specialized team and most up to date sophisticated infrastructure, Suvla winery processes high quality grapes using state-of the-art technology and know-how. The modern style winery also houses a traditional olive oil mill as well as a facility to produce natural agricultural products.

Soil, sun, wind, and history… Key factors of a success in a vineyard. Since the beginning of vine planting, as years went by, the impressive terroir yielded very high quality grapes. Today the region has become the center for high quality boutique vineyards. The family vineyard is organically certificated and surrounded by pine trees, with the intense smells of resin and lavender in the salty seaside air. The hardpan soil and the northwest winds are the aspects of the microclimate that provides the perfect environment for the maturation of high quality grapes. Nestled in the historical Peninsula of Gallipoli, between the North Aegean coast and the Sea of Marmara, the 90 hectares of organic vineyards produce a wide variety of vines. The whites include Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Roussanne and Marsanne, and the reds include Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Grenache Noir, Petit Verdot, and Pinot Noir. The indigenous varieties Kınalı Yapıncak, Karasakız are unique to the Thrace region and others are Öküzgözü and Boğazkere.

In the modern winery, for the consistent success, a painstaking approach is taken in the vineyard and in the winery. The winemaking and cellar teams follow up the hard work done in the vineyard and take extensive care equally in the cellar. With its focus on quality, Suvla works with experts and utilizes state of the art winemaking technology.

After harvest, the grapes are held in cool rooms for a short period of time before being processed. The winery layout has been configured for gravity-flow processing, and has a capacity of 950,000 bottles per year. Temperature controlled, state-of-the art fermentation equipment allows for precise control of the must and modern maturation vessels ensure optimum aging. Selected wines are aged in different types and sizes of oak barrels for the premium labels.

Though it is a young brand launched in 2012, Suvla has been awarded by around 300 worthy of medals in several national and international wine contests. Suvla Wines have around 40 labels of premium and ultra premium labels to satisfy different tastes.
