<<< Gelveri is probably the most extraordinary producer in Turkey’s wine scene at the moment having been initiated by Udo Hirsch, a German native who has travelled all around the world working for WWF and finally settled in Güzelyurt, near Aksaray. Gelveri has concentrated its efforts on saving old vineyards in the province of Güzelyurt, at altitudes between 1,200 to 1,600 metres on the foothills of the majestic Hasandağ, a volcanic mountain and making wine from these grapes with the traditional Caucasian methods of fermenting and ageing in clay vessels of different size and origin.
