Arblaster & Clarke Wine Tours are delighted to announce the introduction of Turkey to our programme of wine tours. There has been a surge of popularity of the wines and the food of this country. Therefore Arblaster & Clarke have planned another wine and gourmet first in Istanbul, one of Turkey's largest cities and also known as the cultural heart of the country.
Istanbul, being partly in the European continent and partly in Asia, is a fascinating city of contrasts. It has a rich and compelling history, and was once the capital of successive Christian and Islamic empires, bequeathing the city with a staggering number of attractions.
Sultanahmet is home to Istanbul’s main sightseeing attractions and is a charming area with its beautiful architecture, attractive parks and gardens, and street side cafes. The streets are also mainly traffic free thanks to a new tramline, which makes seeing the city on foot all the more enjoyable.
A gourmet and wine tour to Turkey may well feature in our programme for 2015, please call or e-mail to register your interest.
