Chamlija Vineyards, located at Büyükkarıştıran The Camlica family has been farming in Buyukkaristiran, Luleburgaz since 1936. The first generation of the family immigrated from Kubadin, Razgrad, in northeastern Bulgaria. Kubadin was renamed Loznitsa in the 1930s. The new name means “Vineyard Place” in Bulgarian, referring to the fact that this was the first place where American rootstocks were grown first time in the country. Arcadia, between Luleburgaz and Istiranca Mountains, that is on the Historical Wine Road Named after Arcadiapolis, the ancient name of Luleburgaz in the Eastern Roman period, Arcadia Vineyards is the pioneering establishment in the resurrection of this ancient terroir, planted in the 2000’s.

Our goal is to discover different vineyards, winemakers and various wines while enjoying and increasing our knowledge of wine. At lunch we will look for a place to stop by; it maybe a vineyard or just a new place that we will discover together or maybe a picknik, why not? If you are excited about the idea please let me know… Vino Dessera: A special selection But let me tell you about the experience we all had last sunday. We met in Istanbul at different points to make people comfortable. We started at nine o’clock, not too early, as Sunday is a resting day for most people. We drove two hours before getting to our first stop which was “Vino Dessera” in Kırklareli region. The road was good and it was an easy driving. I also discovered this brand with everybody else. Doğan Dönmez and his parents, owner of the vineyards, were there to meet us. They shows  us the property wich include Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Öküzgözü and Kalecik . Then we started with a wonderful breakfast under the shadow. Garden tomatoes, olives, cheese from the village of Kırklareli, different vegetables were filling up the table on a white table cloth. Tea was served while Doğan’s mother Yetkin and Saniye Dönmez were telling us the family story of how they started their own business, by planting walnuts...

Rose wine for summer

Rose wine for summer

AMADEUS Vineyard in Bozcaada If you are visiting the island this year you will enjoy one of the 12 wines Olivier and his team is making each year from grapes grown only on the island of Bozcaada. Last year I had been surprised by the “Zinfandel” but this year I will be going first to “Amadeus “Cuvée Rosé” A very typical rose made without second fermentation, blended with 60% cabernet sauvignon and 40% shiraz; bright light red in color, the palate is fresh and fruity finishing on the sweetness. Will go well with meze and pasta. The second one I recommend you is the famous “Blush me” alight pâle pink color wine made with 90% sauvignon blanc and 10% zinfandel , fruity strawberries flavors and taste finishing on a lightly sweetness; drink it very cold after swimming or as an apperitif! serve with fish salad and desert. ARCADIA Fresh Cabernet + Rosé Cabernet Franc, Merlot Light salmon pink. Jasmine, strawberry and cinnamon on the nose. Elegant but expressive fruit of nectarine and red berry on the palate. Round but fresh on the palate, with a juicy, fruity finish. Lovely and pale in the glass, this appealed for its elegance, texture and sheer drinkability. Relatively quiet on the nose, floral notes sit alongside hints of spice and soft fleshy fruit.  SERENDIAS Rose from Urla Living Bozcaada island and going back to Izmir; refering to my recent publishment, this wine made with syrah and sangiovese is quiet dry, crispy and fruity, nice pink salmon color with lovely red fruits flavors, strawberry and gooseberry; have with white cheese, pasta,fish or just by...
