Welcome to Sarap.Online - Turkish Wine and Raki
Sarap.Online is an online shop for Turkish wine and spirits. We have made it our business to bring you closer to Turkish wine and spirits. You can buy an ever-growing selection of Turkish wines here, the country rightly called the cradle of wine.
We have added the original Turkish rakis Yakamoz and Merka to our range. Try the two new and high quality rakis. Both rakis are filtered several times, are unsweetened and have an incomparable taste. We offer the Ustalarin Karisimi for Christmas in a gift box with a raki glass.

We make you want more.
Turkey's winegrowing tradition, which is more than 6000 years old, has been booming since the early 2000s. Many small winemakers have set up boutique wineries where they produce wines from international and regional grape varieties. A lot is invested in new tank technology, as well as methods of growing and expanding the wines. You can also tell from the qualities, because the climate and soil already offer the grapes excellent conditions.
Selection of national and international grape varieties
Try wines from the indigenous grape varieties, such as the row grapes Öküzgözu, Kalecik Karasi or Bogazkere. If you like white wine, we recommend Narince, Sultaniye or Emir. Here we have put together a sample package for you. Turkey has more autochthonous, i.e. indigenous grape varieties that only occur there than any other country. Even if you are unsure, ask us - we would be happy to recommend wines for an invitation, for different dishes or occasions. You can contact us here.
Viticulture in Turkey - Turkish wine as an exotic
Did you know? With 448.000 hectares of vineyards in 2018, Turkey has the fourth largest vineyard area in Europe, behind Spain (1), France (2) and Italy (3) (source OIV World Economic Report 2018). This means that Turkey has around 4 times as much vineyard area as Germany with 102.000 hectares. Outside Europe, Turkey is in second place behind China. Most of the production is for table grapes, the production of grape juice and dried grapes, only about 3% is used for the production of wine and raki.
Half of the wine produced in the country is consumed by tourists. So it often happens that Turkey vacationers ask us about their new “favorite wine” and whether you can get it here. All in all, the result can be seen and, above all, tasted unequivocally for the Turkish wine! The large number of international awards and medals at renowned wine events and tastings are evidence of the high level and increasing popularity, not only among wine professionals.
Turkish wine in Germany
Turkey imports only 7.000 hl to Germany (according to 2017 statistics), for comparison, Italy imported 5.456.000 hl of wine to Germany in the same year. So, as a consumer of Turkish wine, you can count yourself as exotic, or better still, count yourself among an illustrious group of initiated connoisseurs! And that's what we've come up with, because with us you can simply experience and buy original Turkish wine and raki.
