Product ID: 30214
Description

Arda Winery is a family winery surrounded by vineyards, located near the historic town of Edirne.  
Arda is the first boutique winery in Edirne, a historic town in the center of Thrace, the land of wine loving ancient Thracians. 
The winery is built using stone and fired brick, resembling early 20th century Turkish architecture and is surrounded by Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot vineyards.
All vineyards have been cultivated since 2007 and are taken care of by the father Ilyas Sac. His daughter Seniz studied enology in France and is the winemaker, assisted by another experienced winemaker, Kamen Koev. The son, Yavuz Sac has a masters degree on wine history and hosts the visitors in the winery.
The vineyards are on moderate east facing slopes, summers are dry with constant northern winds. The winery concentrates on low yield, high quality grapes for intense fruity reds and elegant whites.
Wine visitors will have the chance to visit the cellar, situated 7 m underground, with 1 m thick stone walls and enjoy wine tastings. Two of the winery's 2012 wines (first year of production) received silver medals from Mundus Vini in early 2015.
Visiting wine lovers can also enjoy a delicious lunch...
