Suvla Winery & Vineyard
Suvla Winery is a family owned wine producer and viticulture company located in Eceabat by the Çanakkale Strait -Dardanelles on the historical Peninsula of Gallipoli in Turkey. Suvla is named after a bay in the north coast of the Aegean Sea, close to family vineyard Bozokbağ. In this region, famous with it’s history, the relationship between vines and soil is going on for centuries.
Focusing on quality and working with a specialized team and most up to date sophisticated infrastructure, Suvla winery processes high quality grapes using state-of the-art technology and know-how. The modern style winery also houses a traditional olive oil mill as well as a facility to produce natural agricultural products.

A gourmet restaurant and a tasting bar puts the finishing touches to the concept store located at the entrance of the winery.
Soil, sun, wind, and history… Key factors of a success in a vineyard. Since the beginning of vine planting, as years went by, the impressive terroir yielded very high quality grapes. Today the region has become the center for high quality boutique vineyards. The family vineyard is organically certificated and surrounded by pine trees, with the intense smells of resin and lavender in the salty seaside air.
The vineyard sets discovered in the ground of this green museum, in which there are 1900 different plant types, took us to an quite different journey.
Nestled in the historical Peninsula of Gallipoli, between the North Aegean coast and the Sea of Marmara, the 90 hectares of organic vineyards produce a wide variety of vines. The whites include Chardonnay, Sauvignon Blanc, Roussanne and Marsanne, and the reds include Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Cabernet Franc, Grenache Noir, Petit Verdot, and Pinot Noir. The indigenous varieties Kınalı Yapıncak, Karasakız are unique to the Thrace region and others are Öküzgözü and Boğazkere.
In the modern Suvla Winery for the consistent success, a painstaking approach is taken in the vineyard and in the winery. The winemaking and cellar teams follow up the hard work done in the vineyard and take extensive care equally in the cellar. With its focus on quality, Suvla works with experts and utilizes state of the art winemaking technology.
