OUR STORY

Thousands years old goblets and pitchers, the world's oldest amphoras, frescoes depicting Hittite kings offering wine to gods, myths, inscriptions… Our effort is to carry the flag proudly in the homeland of wine.

Our endeavor is to carry the torch of Hittites in one of the homelands of viniculture with pride with our globally awarded wines, our carefully processed vineyards and wines and with our rich cellar located in the thousands of years old caves of argos in Cappadocia, one of the best 10 wine hotels of the world.

VINEYARDS

Argos Vineyards' extraordinary wines that excellently reflect Cappadocia terroir are produced with the grapes grown in our four vineyards spanning 21 hectares on the slopes of Kızılırmak (Halys River). The common soil structure with a volcanic quality featuring rocks, clay and tuff, provides the ideal and quality growing conditions for our Kalecik Karası, Shiraz, Emir, Narince, Boğazkere and Tempranillo grape varieties. We continue our endeavors under harsh climate and soil conditions without compromising on producing low yield, high quality grapes.

GRAPES

KALECİK KARASI

Kalecik Karası is an indigenous grape type of Kalecik county of Ankara, Turkey. Wines produced by Kalecik Karası are elegant and soft due to the slow maturing period of the type. Wines from Kalecik Karası which is easy to grow in the inner Anatolia regions, are light colored, aromatic, medium-bodied with high acidity. Contains dense fruit aromas of cherry and blackberry.

SYRAH
