A wine-lover-friendly and interactive “Sommeliers’ Selection Türkiye 2018” tasting will be held at the Marmara Taksim Hotel on Nov. 24 and Nov. 25. 

The event is divided into two main sections. The first section is the “Walk Around Tasting” that includes 250 plus products from over 50 wineries, breweries and artisan food producers/importers such as olive oil, cheese, bread and delicatessens. 

Various labels from different wineries will be presented according to their density and grape variety and in their ideal tasting order meant to guarantee a perfect tasting experience. Starting with sparkling and on to light-bodied whites, medium-bodied whites, full-density whites and then roses, which are then followed by light-density reds etc., all labels will be grouped and placed on tables according to their color, density and grape variety. 

The second section of the event is the “Master Classes,” which will be conducted in English by two master sommeliers, Turkish İsa Bal and Australian Matt Wilkin. 

They will present around 15 labels chosen from among the best Turkish wines, tasting them together with participants while explaining the technical and sensory merits of their wine choices. 

As mentioned above, a combination “Walk Around Tasting” and “Master Classes” ticket, whether for one day or two days, can be purchased at a discount from the regular Walk Around Tasting price.

Needless to say, it is given as an incentive for full participation in this wonderful wine event. 

Tickets for the event are available at Mobilet.
