Doluca was one of the first Turkish wine producers – this family-owned winery was founded in 1926, the same year the Turkish Republic was formed. Owned and managed by the Kutman family over three generations, they focus on indigenous varieties while investing in modern technology. Their award-winning Kav range of wines focus on three indigenous varieties – Narince, Bogazkere and Okuzgozu.
The name Doluca comes from the highest point of the Murefte region of Turkey, where Doluca was founded, and they own and manage vineyards in different areas of Turkey. Nihat Ahmet Kutman, the founder of Doluca, was Turkey’s first oenologist having trained in Germany. Third generation Sibel Kutman Oral runs the marketing activities for Doluca today, while head winemaker Aysun Pirdel is assisted by Doluca family member Luca Cerruti.
