The Marmara Hotels, Turkey

The Marmara Hotels in Turkey grow their own wine: Vinkara. Vinkara’s
vineyards are located in the wine-growing region Kalecik in Central
Anatolia. Although this region has a rich viticultural history and is
regarded as Turkey’s finest wine-growing region, it is largely unknown
outside the country. Winemaking in this area dates back to the Hittites
who realized that this soil is blessed with an ideal terroir and perfect micro-climate – identical to that of
other premium world-class wine-growing terrains. Vinkara produces wines from a blend of
international grape stocks as well as resurrecting a premium selection of as-yet undiscovered
Anatolian grape varieties to bring bold new tastes to the world’s palate.

Grand Hotel Europa, Innsbruck, Austria

Wine from Austria can be found on every good wine menu and is highly
appreciated by wine connoisseurs. The country’s climate offers ideal
grape-growing conditions for Riesling, Sauvignon Blanc, Gelber

Blanc), Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Merlot and Cabernet. With its Europa
Stüberl, the Grand Hotel Europa owns a top-class restaurant which is known far beyond the borders of
the Tyrolean capital Innsbruck. The wine menu has an emphasis on first-class Austrian wines.

Hotel Bristol, Geneva, Switzerland
The Restaurant Côté Square at the Hotel Bristol was recently awarded a
16/20 grade by the famous Gault & Millau Guide 2020. Special praise was
given for the enchanting cuisine of chef Bruno Marchal and the excellent
