In times of antiquity, the most desired wine in the Western Mediterannean was shipped in clay vessels from the Ionian city of Klazomenai (Urla). Urla’s regeneration as a wine producing area began at the turn of this century. After discovering vineyards over a thousand years old at the slope of his farm located on 2000 acres of land in Urla, Can Ortabas researched the history of the area only to discover that historically the former main crop had been grapes for the production of wine, uncovering a history of long-forgotten viticulture. The foundations of Urla Sarapçılık were laid when Can Ortabas started his own vineyards which are farmed entirely following Biodynamic methods. The vineyards consist of Italian and French grape varieties including Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Nero d’Avola, Cabernet Franc, Merlot, Sangiovese, Petit Verdot as well as indigenous varieties Boğazkere and Bornova Misket, grapes of Anatolia, which have been introduced over the last 8 years.

Looking to recapture the area’s lost heritage and reputation, Urla winery is combining old customs with a modern approach to successfully produce around 200,000 litres of quality wine. This drive for perfection will continue for many years to come.
