Turkish wine producers prepare to descend on London for 'biggest' trade tasting

Published:  17 September, 2015

Wines of Turkey will be hosting the largest ever number of producers brought together for its trade and press tasting in London in October.

There will be masterclasses on Turkish wine, grapes and regions with Masters of Wine Peter McCombie and Sarah Abbott.

Abbott said: "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."

Over 100 wines made from Turkey's indigenous grape varieties and international ones will be on show from producers including Arcadia, Barbare, Büyülüba, Doluca, Gulor, Gali, Karmen, Kastro Tireli, Kavaklidere, Kayra, Mozaik, Pamukkale, Pasaeli, Selendi, Sevilen, Urla and Vinkara.

The tasting takes place at Haberdasher's Hall in London EC1 on October 14.
