|As a result of our long practice in the wine sector, we have invested all our experience and passion in a brand new marque, which will carry our past production strength forward to the future. Basing ourselves on our faith in the goodness which lies in the nature of the wine, we have named our wine family as "Kayra”. Kayra wine family has been an important step in the long run projects aiming to improve the vinification standards in Turkey by revealing the true potential of our vineyards. Under the eonologist Daniel O’Donnell’s guidance, the delicacy of vinification process, starting by the choice of soil and variety, completed by the vintage and the bottling, has been reflected to all our products. The rich cultural history and the generous spirit of Anatolia will meet you by means of the Kayra family. Kayra wines are being produced from the grapes grown in the most outstanding vineyard regions of Anatolia and processed at the Elaz?g( and S,arköy wine production facilities located within the same regions, before they lose their freshness, in pursuance of the "in place production” philosophy. Kayra was developed with the aim to reveal the true vinegrowing and vinification potantial of the Anatolian soil, the homeland of wine. The wine production facilities of Elaz?g(, established in 1942 and that of S,arköy, established in 1996 have respectively annual capacities of 4.794.000 litres and 4.455.000 litres. Kayra Wines, which meet the consumers under the brand names Cumartesi, T?ls?m, Nevzade, Balo, Buzbag(, Cameo d’Oro and Terra, provide a wide spectrum of alternatives to match with any kind of food at any given moment. It is not only the flavours or the taste caracteristics that makes these wines attractive; the elegant label and bottle designs decorated with the modern versions of symbols originating from different Anatolian civilisations contribute to their charm. Kayra, who has developed a wide spectrum of products to satisfy different tastes in different occassions, aims also to differ with its quality/price balance. For ages, people have always glorified the wine. Some have said "The truth is the wine,” and some have called the wine as the "water of life” . Wine, born in Anatolia, has always been at the very top among the world’s most noble beverages. Now, it is time that the wine is glorified on this land where it belongs.
