How about a day to taste delicious Turkish wines and learn about the Anatolian wine culture? Food and wine archaeology has increasingly become an interesting study field and we are inviting you to take part in this exciting journey!
Museum visit + Two different Wine Tasting
Starting from Istanbul Archeology Museum, we’ll discover one of the oldest wine cultures of the world. In the light of archaeological excavations, it’s proved that both wild and domesticated grapes were spread to the world from Anatolia and its eastern neighbours like Iran, Georgia and Armenia. The oldest evidences of existence of a wine culture in the world are also found here in Anatolia.
First villages and farming communities were established here in Turkey. Mesopotamia region played a very important role in ancient food and drinking cultures. By visiting the archeological museum of Istanbul, we will have a broader understanding about the origins of vine and wine culture that will take you to a 4000 years old journey.
Following the archeological museum visit, you’ll participate in a tasting session with three different wines produced from native grapes of Turkey. The tasting will be accompanied by a professional commentary provided by Vinotolia: Cüneyt Uygur and Murat Yankı. The wine tasting tour also includes a lunch. A broad selection of Turkish food, paired with appropriate wine will be served.
