Situated in the Strandja massif in Thrace, Turkey, Chamlija winery stretches across a number of different soil types in the area from decomposed granite to clay and limestone, making it an extremely interesting place to grow grapes amounting to a very diverse collection of vineyards and grape varieties.
The Chamlija family began farming in Thrace in 1936, but it was Mustafa Camlica from the third generation of the family that decided to spearhead this ambitious boutique winery in 2000. Named after his daughter, Irem, who also designs the labels, Chamlija plants both indigenous and international varietals, some planted at high density to encourage deep root systems that can take full advantage of the terroir.
