Onwards from the 7th century BC, the most desired wine on a wide area spanning over the wetern Mediterranean up until the Black Sea was made and shipped in unique clay vessels from the Ionian city of Klazomenai (Urla) with its unique soils and micro climate. During the period of phylloxera, this region was Europe’s source for wine.
In the turn of the century, Urla Şarapçılık started a journey to reestablish the lost reputation of Klazomenai, assembling its old customs with a modern approach in their own vineyards.
Urla Şarapçılık, focusing on viticulture and wine production on a regional scale, aims to revive the ancient wine culture of the area and bring its glorious heritage to the future.
Spread over 350 acres, our own vineyards are overseen by organic and good agricultural practices since their early plantations. 150 to 200 thousand liters of quality wine are produced from endemic and international varieties improved through ongoing clone selection practices.
Standing on as passionate as ever, Urla Şarapçılık is determined to open new horizons for its homeland that is earning better recognition as a tourist destination day by day.
