About Our Wines
The domesticated grapevine (Vitis vinifera) is historically one of the most important fruit species in the classic Mediterranean world. It is the most important economic fruit species in the modern world today. Amazingly, the pine forests in the region from Mugla eastwards along the coast to Antalya still grows the wild vitis vinifera sylvestris. These produce some of the most popular wine grapes such as pinot noir and cabernet sauvignon. All wines we will be tasting will be grown and produced in Turkey. Most grapes will be original Turkish strains but we will also have a few non-Turkish originated grapes which are grown in Turkey. Our wine portfolio changes almost weekly, but is always of top notch quality on our Wine Tasting Dalyan Boat Trip.
Beginning at 6.00 pm, set sail with us on our beautiful boat from Dalyan harbour as we make our way out towards the breath-taking Koycegiz Lake . After a while, we arrive at the perfect spot to marvel at the stunning sunset. As day turns into night, you will have the opportunity to enjoy ten varieties of wine. You will be offered a cross section of red, white and rose wines on an unlimited basis. These will be expertly matched with sumptuous platters of food in which you can indulge. Be assured, the contents of these platters will be carefully chosen to complement the delicious flavours of the various wines. You will be spoiled with a huge variety of meats, cheeses, nuts, breads and fruits to truly bring out the best of the deep rooted essence within each type of wine on our Wine Tasting Dalyan Boat Trip.
Later in the evening, we will serve you a delicious homemade chicken saute, accompanied with rice and a delicious salad.
As well as savouring the wonderful tastes of all that is on offer, you will also be able to learn the history of the wines, along with the vineyards and the areas of origin – all whilst we cruise on our boat making occasional stops at beautiful scenic points along the way. Weather and your mood allowing, you will have the opportunity to enjoy the warm waters of Koycegiz Lake (dependant on season). You will be able to swim under the stars with your wine being served to you in the water on our Wine Tasting Dalyan boat trip.
We will aim to return to Dalyan for 10.00 pm.
At the end of the trip there will be the opportunity for you to purchase any wines you particularly enjoyed by the bottle should you so wish. If you are not a wine drinker as such but would still like to join the trip, we can change your unlimited wine option to something else if you prefer.
