Turkey is a fascinating and ancient winemaking region known for its use of indigenous grape varieties, such as Okuzgozu and Bogazkere, which are used to produce unique and flavorful wines. In addition to these indigenous grapes, popular international varietals such as Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc are also grown in the region. Turkish winemakers produce a range of wine styles, including dry red and white wines, as well as sweet dessert wines and sparkling wines, with the latter being a specialty of the region. Turkish wine regions are concentrated in the west of the country, including Thrace, Aegean, and Marmara, and the central region of Anatolia. Today, the country's winemakers are dedicated to producing exceptional wines that reflect the unique character of the region.
