Melen Winery, Marmara, Şarköy, Tekirdağ, Turkey  

There are different opinions as to which alcoholic drink was seen the earliest in human history. Of course, wine, the drink of gods, has been the staple in all celebrations and blessings since antiquity. In Eastern mythology, Jamshid invented wine with grapes whose seeds came to him from the sky. In Western civilizations, people praised Dionysus for giving them the secrets of winemaking. It is also said in the Old Testament that Noah, who settled on the Mountains of Ararat after the Great Flood, was the first grape grower. There are countless stories like this which define the value of wine. For this reason, wine must be produced with the care it deserves -because it was never an ordinary drink.

Melen Winery upholds its share of this heritage; adding contemporariness to three generations of experience, and always growing on the same soil. Products always carry the story of their manufacturer. Wine, along with the scent of the earth from which it came, and the warmth of the sun, has the work of the winemaker in its aroma.
