Türkiye has long been regarded as the homeland of viticulture and the earliest wine culture in the world. Archaeological evidence positions the origin of the domestica-tion of grape seeds and viticulture to southeastern Anatolia sometime between 5000 and 8500 BC.
The country's most beautiful red wine grapes are grown on these plateaus with an altitude of 1,000-1,500 meters located in the Southeastern Türkiye, in upper Mesopotamia between the Euphrates and Tigris rivers.
Boğazkere is one of the strongest and most characterful grapes grown in Türkiye. The homeland of Boğazkere is Diyarbakır in Eastern Türkiye. The wines made of the small, dark-colored, and thick-skinned Boğazkere grapes have a strong body and are suitable for aging.
