Kaynaklar, İzmir

Serez vineyard has a stony, gravely and clay red soil and is at an altitude of 235 meters. This altitude gives the possibility of day and night temperature differences during late August and early September, namely during the harvest period. This ensures the grapes to retain their acidity while reaching sugar and phenolic maturity. As a result, concentrated, full bodied and fruity, but at the same time balanced and elegant wines can be produced.

 

We planted our vineyard in 2002, a single vineyard of 4 hectares near Kaynaklar village of Buca District of İzmir. Our grapes are Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot, appropriate for a typical Bordeaux blend… We imported our vines from Pepinieres Guillaume; grafted with clones yielding quality grapes on to American rootstocks suitable to our “terroir”. Planting of the vines was done dense, channeling the energies of the plants to root development rather than yielding many kilos of fruit. In short, we deliberately obtain low yields. We reduce number of shoots in May. Also we “green harvest” in July certain clusters so that remaining clusters have better quality and taste.

Hoşköy, Tekirdağ

Our vineyards in Hoşköy have partly clay and limy soil with high mineral content. They are at an altitude of 140 meters, and open to the winds blowing from Sea of Marmara. Thus, our grapes stay “cool” during late August and early September and retain their acidity. So we are able to produce concentrated, full bodied and fruity, but at the same time balanced and elegant wines.

 

We began to plant our vineyards in 2003. We still continue… Our vineyards neighbour to each other totaling 6 hectares. Our grapes are Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Merlot and Petit Verdot. We imported our vines from Pepinieres Guillaume; grafted with clones yielding quality grapes on to American rootstocks suitable to our “terroir”.

 

We also planted Kolorko, an indigenous variety of Thrace that is almost becoming extinct. It is an interesting variety that can give unique white wines. Our wish is to save this indigenous variety from extinction and ensure that it is passed to the future generations.
