Viniculture exists almost for 6000 years in Cappadocia. There are 30 - 35 kinds of grapes grown as wine grapes in the vineyards. Grape cultivation has entered our daily life as an Anatolian tradition. Pergolas in front of many houses built for shading is made of grapes.
Wine workshops in the villages of Cappadocia where Greek is spoken are called as “PATOS”. Grapes were mashed by foot. The Greeks called that section as “HARMAN”. It was a tradition to taste new crop wines at new year’s eve.
Wine used in their rituals by the Greeks and called “NAMA” was specially manufactured. The grapes are not mashed from producing that wine and stum called as “DAKREMA” (TEAR) was collected from drops of grapes that were kept await for a few days and Nama stum were kept aging in some places and should not be drunken until a certain period of time past.
Wine production has grown to an extent as an extension of the Anatolian tradition.
