Paşaeli is a family-owned estate that was founded by Seyit Karagözoğlu in 2000 who believes strongly in the potential of indigenous varieties of Turkey.
Seyit is a strong believer in the indigenous varieties of Turkey. He describes them as their true “treasures”! All their wines are made with fruit from single vineyards, so they make true “terroir” wines.
The wines are all made from fruit coming from single vineyards. Paşaeli wines emphasize fruit intensity and balance. Lush and enticing upon release, they will age well for a number of years and will continue to develop complexity with cellaring.
Their red wines are only vinified with native yeasts so all reds are wild ferments. Recently they have been experimenting with skin contact wines (aka orange wine or amber wine) made from their unique indigenous varietals.
