There are places you visit just “passing by”. Nice and cute places. But also there are other places - you actually hit the road to GET there. "Ayda Vineyards" is one of those special places. It's a boutique, authentic place - winery itself, restaurant, wine tasting room and a small (only 6 suits) hotel.

You can’t stop by - it’s far from the main road, you have to know about this place and you’ll drive to GET there (road is bumpy and narrow but not long - drive safely!).

The winery is on the top of a hill - you have 360 degree panoramic view of the area - stunning - especially during the sunset. An amazing, carefully selected music collection plays in the background harmonically coupling with the whole atmosphere.

Ayda is a very knowledgeable but humble lady. A polite and careful person - you can feel it from the first moment you speak with her.

At the moment “Ayda Vineyards” produces two whites, a rose and four reds under the trademark Vinaida. All dry. All well balanced, with complicated bouquets, rich in tannins (reds), good for ageing (Merlot, Shiraz and Pinot Noir - our favs!), Rose - didn’t expect to find that much rich bouquet here in Turkey.

The restaurant food is cooked locally in the winery kitchen using local Aegean products and is rich in hints and flavours. All very delicious with options for vegans.

If you decide to visit the winery do your best to do so (wines are beautiful in colour, strong in taste and unique in bouquet) with dinner at sunset prolonging the “nirvana experience” and stay for a night (reservation is a must as there are only 6 rooms.

Enjoy the wines, inhale the fresh mountain air with its pine and olive tree aromas, have a delicious dinner with some local cheeses, stay and sleep deeply - in the morning you will be rewarded not only with a feeling of being energised, happy and fulfilled but (some materialistic award this time) with the amazing breakfast served in the garden.
