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.
