A big space, newly constructed, awaiting the arrival of new stainless steel tanks. This is the Kocabag Winery deep in the heart of Cappadocia, Turkey.

Mehmet Erdogan, the father of Hasan-Menduh Erdogan, established Kocaba? in 1972. His main purpose was to benefit the surplus of grapes available producing table wine consumption. He carved a rock in his garden to build a cellar with a storage capacity of 150 thousands of litres. The company put its first bottle of wine on the market in 1986. In todays wine sector, Kocabag is within the first top 5 wineries in Turkey, whose products are the most desired. The rock-built cellars providing the constant temperature of 8-10C affects positively the wine quality. The Cappadocian region is one of the most productive places for viticulture. In the region many indigenous of grape varieties are grown. Of all the grapes, Kalecikkaras?, Öküzgözü, Bo?azkere, Narince, Emir are the most common grape varieties from this region. Kocaba? started viniculture in 1990 and now has vineyards of 35 hectares of the grapes above mentioned. Kocabag.com
