What is your favourite wine or wines, be it
Red or White. It dosn't have to be Turkish
but has to be available in Turkey.

Rob,

I saw in Metro at Bodrum that they sell Mateus, but not cheap !

Andy,

Anything white (can't stomach red !) and not too dry, otherwise not fussy.

Some of the reasonably priced stuff at Migros does the trick for me.

I like Majestic (Turkish white)

Thinking of attempting to make my own as we have about 200kg of white grapes. Has anyone made their own that could impart some useful knowledge/tips?

Hopefully I'll then have a new favourite!

It dosn't matter what colour it is, but a name of the wine you like and would recommend.

Sorry should have made it a bit clearer. :25:

We can recommend Sultaniye (think thats how its spelt) a white wine that has a very fruity flavour.

The fruit wines from Sirnice are my favorites, you can buy direct
in the village (cheapest way) or I do believe that some of the
major turkish supermarkets hold some stock. Mullberry is my favorite :becky:

We also like Kavak. Altintepe is quite nice and you can get it in 1litre bottles with a screw cap. Our favourite though is Angora white. It's pricey in restaurants but quite often Migros have it on offer if you have a Migros card. It's similar to a Pinot Grigio light and fruity. I think it's about 12% proof so hits the spot.

Kavak sounds familiar, but any white, I cant say I have ever been dissapointed as long as it is white and dry and not too expensive.

Majestik, Villa dolcia & Angora, all available Red or White, normally around 13ytl but every now & then all the supermarkets reduce them 4 or 5 ytl a bottle. Metro currently selling Majestik 7.50 ytl including vat. cheers everybody.

Mines a Ros'e thanks. I find any Ros'e in Turkey does me fine, even the ones that are on special offer in whatever supermarket I'm in at the time. But Majestik, Villa dolcia & Angora are good to go! :cheers:

Angora is the best we have found so far, but we will certainly try Majestic and Villa dolcia when we next visit in July. Has anyone discovered anything turkish similar to Sancerre or Sauvignon Blanc?

On the same note, does anyone living in Turkey make thier own wine? We make it here in UK and thought, with the cheap fruit available out there, plus the warm weather the help fermentation, that it might be something to try next time we're there for a decent length of time.

I'm planning to attempt to make some. Do you think there is anything I need to buy that I won't find here? such as the yeast?
Thanks

Yes to Angora, both red and white, and Kavak... but I cannot cope with Dikmen (there is just not enough nurofen in the world for that wine). Angora was on at 8.60ytl in Tansas when we were out May/June but seemed to be 13ytl everywhere else. We were told to check out TESPO cash and carry which is now free to join (opposite KIPA in Marmaris for those who live there) and they were selling wine cheaper the more you got.. so 24 bottles of Angora was nearer 8ytl (same for beer etc). I have taken casis out to make white wine kir, bit like rose, using the really cheap white wines.. takes the edge off them ! Has anyone tried to buy wine direct from the vineyards ? Emma
