The Friday Night Wine – K Of Kapadokia

K of Kapadokia is a new breed of authentic wines from Cappadocia featuring a red made from indigenous grapes. Memduh Erdogan and his two brothers from the winery Kocabag in Uçhisar, Cappadocia have surrounded themselves with a team of international wine enthusiasts and experts to convince the world about turkish wine. Together they created K of Kapadokia. The brohers gave the spirit of Cappadocia to this special blend, from two main indigenous grape varieties: Öküzgözü (ox eye) and Boğazkere (throat burner).

Kocabağ Şarapçılık is a small local vineyard and winery in Uçhisar, Cappadocia, which produces red and white wines from traditional Turkish grapes: Öküzgözü, Boğazkere, Kalecik Karası, Narince and Emir. Founded in 1972, it sold its first wine in 1986, and by 1990 had 35 hectares in vines. Its Cappadocian tufa caves have a capacity today of 300,000 liters.
