Silver: International Wine Challenge 2015
Silver: Decanter Wine Challenge 2015
Background: Everything starts with a dream. This is Aegean Turkey, the homeland of Mythology and Dionysus…
…the birthplace of Domaine Lucien Arkas which inherited the fertility, diversity, and extraordinary nature of the Aegean Region. Our wines owe their dignity and vision to their owner: Lucien Arkas.
His vision of the wine is decidedly qualitative. He realized the dream of producing the best wines in Turkey.
Domaine Lucien Arkas manages the first organic vineyard certified by Ecocert in Turkey. An exceptional terroir spread over 200 hectares and blessed by the gentle Aegean climate. Priority is given to manual harvesting at night in order to maintain the quality of the grapes. A perfect balance between tradition and modernism allows the wines to age in French and American oak barrels or stainless steel tanks.
Grape Varietal: A blend of estate-bottled Organic traditional Turkish grapes- Okuzgozu-Bogazkere that is hand-harvested at night to ensure the fruity aroma of the grapes.
