    Hello, I think argos in Cappadocia Hotel from Turkey-Cappadocia region might have been in this list too.
    The hotel has vines around its restaurant, Seki and also produces its own wines from its vineyards with Syrah and a local indeginious variety of Kalecik Karası. The Syrah wine has received a gold medal in the International Syrah du Monde Competition in 2013 :))

  2. Merci beaucoup pour votre article qui nous a fait chaud au cœur. En effet, viticulteurs nous-même et issus de familles de viticulteurs depuis plusieurs générations, nous sommes investis dans le tourisme viticole depuis 8 ans déjà. Nos vins de Chusclan méritent d’être connus et reconnus parmi les meilleurs vignobles de France, au même titre que la richesse du patrimoine Gardois. C’est à cette promotion que nous nous attachons en recevant nos hôtes avec beaucoup de chaleur humaine, privilégiant le confort et l’authenticité, et en leur servant de guide pour découvrir cette partie du Sud de la France qui nous tient à cœur. Merci encore.
