More info

The grapes come from fifteen to twenty-year-old unirrigated vines, planted on limestone and clay soils in Güney. The grapes were harvested by hand.

The grapes were picked by hand and underwent fermentation in stainless-steel tanks at 23-25°C, with fifteen days’ maceration on the skins. After fermentation, 10% of the wine underwent a period of ageing in 300-litre, medium toast, French oak barrels.

Sevilen

The Sevilen winery was founded by Bulgarian immigrant Isa Güner in 1942, who convinced by Turkey’s potential for producing quality wines, purchased four hectares of land in Izmir and began planting vineyards. His passion for the land led him to name his fledgling business Sevilen, meaning ‘Beloved’. Expansion took a step change under his sons, Gökhan and Coflkun, who joined the business in 1958, growing the holdings to 50 hectares. Now run by the third generation of the Güner family, Sevilen own a total of 160 hectares of vineyards and demonstrate a level of ambition that has positioned them as one of Turkey’s most significant high-quality wine producers.
