Antioche Winery and Vinyards

Today total Antioche Winery & Vineyards​ area is around 200 decares and some new vineyards are planted every year. They plant grape varieties such as Sangiovese, Swah, Merlot, Cabemet Sauvigncn, Sauvignon Blanc and Barburi. 

Vintage time is like August. Wine expert decides the harvest time by performing necessary tests and tasting grapes. Harvesting starts early in the cool hours of the morning before the midday heat. Production facility is inside vineyards, so the Chateau Type Wine Production is carried out. Maceration and Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks. Also, production is aged in French oak barrels.

Turkey’s Antakya is one of the earliest Christian ancient landscapes which has its own traditional way of wine making. Antioche Winery not only continues that tradition but is very seriously revitalizing the wine culture that was once so ubiquitous in the region. Their point of pride is the barburi grape from which locals and the founder’s grandparents used to make wine, but was currently used for the likes of juice and molasses.
