Hello! This is Burcu. I travelled 52 countries and experienced different kinds of wine and food. I realised that wine is the only type of alcohol that I enjoy, and I’m in love with it. Untill recent I thought that Turkey isn’t capable to produce good wine, but I was wrong. I found great wineyards and boutique wines from different regions here and I want to share this with you!. I am now a qualified Wine Sommelier beside on the part of learning, reading, visiting and tasting i decided to get the proper education as well and started ‘Wset’ which will be maybe continue until the ‘Court of Masters Sommelier’. Well, who knows maybe my dream will come true one day :)

Great experience and Burcu was so sweet to show us the whole neighborhood after our experience was finished. Burcu is very knowledgeable on Turkish wines, we learned a lot while tasting delicious wines. We purchased a bottle afterward did a great price. We were also interested in learning about the neighborhood Moda, particularly the many animals that are taken care of by the neighborhood. Burcu was so kind and took us around and introduced us to the local dogs which was a special treat.

Burcu is one of a kind. Definitely worth it and would recommend talking to her privately if you have an (extra) love for wine! She can tailor it elegantly

The wine tasting with Burcu was lovely! It felt invited to share the passion of a longtime friend and I tasted a thoughtful selection of wines. I look forward to the next time we meet over a great meal accompanied by amazing bottles. And her cats and dogs are adorable! I highly recommend!

Burcu was amazing! Her knowledge of wine and wine regions of Turkey was something we learned a lot about from her. The wines were fabulous and she ordered them well. The light snacks after were thoughtful and delicious. We would recommend this experience to any and all who appreciate wine and good company!

I had a very nice experience on the wine tasting! She had to adjust venues and everything due to covid, but I still think it’s a great opportunity to enjoy local, Turkish wines from many different regions of Turkey that I wouldn’t have thought to try on my own. Also, she gave us some information about how professionals taste and evaluate the wine which was quite interesting! It’s a fun time with nice people and we had really tasty appetisers after trying all the wines, plus you have the option to take more glasses or bottles as you like, but no pressure. Definitely would recommend and I would be keen to try more tours with Burcu if I get a chance!
