The ancient world gives us the most exciting new frontiers of winemaking. Turkey is among the most exciting with around 1000 native varieties like these two Öküzgözü (“ox’ eye”) and Boğazkere (“throat burner”). Don’t be put off, they make a hearty, berry and cocoa infused red that complements venison.
