After discovering sets of vineyards over a thousand years old at the slope of his farm located on 2000 decares of land in Urla, Can Ortabaş started some research and found out that the area’s former main sector had been vineyards mainly for the making of wine accounting for thousands of years of viticulture long forgotten..

The foundations of Urla Şarapçılık were laid as when Mr Ortabas and Uzbas Ltd started their own vineyards some ten years ago and started working on how to promote the town of Urla as a center of attraction as well as a town with its’ own wine brand.
