Tantalise your tastebuds and learn the history of our famous regional wines on our exclusive to Volkan’s Adventures Evening Wine Tasting tour, where you will be tasting some extraordinary wines because of the way they are produced. All or almost all wines we will be serving will be age-able wines that are produced without sulfites. Therefore at the end of tonight and next day, you shall not expect to have a headache, regardless of how much you had a drink. All our wines are sourced with the help of Turkish Wines and Wineries Association in efforts to give information about the high know how level of Turkish wine industry. We will talk about how and why these wines are extra special during the tour.
The domesticated grapevine (Vitis vinifera) is historically one of the most important fruit species in the classic Mediterranean world, and 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, which produces some of the most popular wine grapes such as pinot noir and cabernet sauvignon. All wines will be tasting will be grown and produced in Turkey. Most grapes will be original Turkish strains but we will also have some non-Turkish originated grapes but still grown in Turkey. Our wine portfolio changes almost weekly, but always at the top notch quality.
Beginning at 7.00pm, set sail with us on our newly renovated boat from Dalyan harbor as we make our way out across the breathtaking Koycegiz Lake until 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 variations within a cross section of red, white and rose wines on an unlimited basis. Furthermore these will be expertly matched with sumptuous platters for you to indulge in, the contents of which will be chosen due to the perfect harmonization of flavors with the 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. Later in the evenings we will also light up the BBQ for plenty of perfectly cooked chicken wings.
As well as savoring the wonderful tastes of all that is on offer, you will also be able to learn the history of the wines, the vineyards and the areas of origin as 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 warm (depending on season) waters of Koycegiz Lake swimming under the stars and your wine being served to you in the water.
