Program Details:

After picking up all of our guests, we head to Mürefte town which is known as the capital of wine. Having our breakfast on the bus, we take a break in Tekirdağ.

We reach Şarköy around noon. After a short brief about the town, we go to one of the best restaurants in town for lunch, starting to taste the wines of the region.

Our first stop after lunch is the vineyards. We take a short walk at the vineyards by the sea, picking up the grapes, continuing to tasting wines.

Next stop is Mürefte. Again after a short brief about the town, we head to the Wine Museum to discover the the journey of grape to a nice bottle of wine, adding to our knowledge of wine making.

At our last stop, the winery, we say goodbye to the harvested grapes that will become wine and maybe meet us again on our table in a few years.

On our way back, we reach Tekirdağ watching the amazing views from the Uçmakdere cliffs. In our Tekirdağ break, you will have the opportunity to taste the famous Tekirdağ meatballs if you like.

We will be back in Istanbul around 21:00.

p.s. This is a wine-themed trip which means you will be drinking wine all day. Generally our guests do not get drunk since they drink in open air at certain intervals. An average drinker will be just a little tipsy.

p.p.s. Harvesting is only made for a month or two during September-October in this region so the seats are limited due to demand.
