Charity tasting of Turkish Wines for earthquake relief fund
The wave of willingness to help the people affected by the earthquake disaster in Turkey does not stop. On the initiative of Caro Maurer MW from Bonn, various companies active in the wine sector joined forces and were invited to a donation tasting with Turkish wines.
The event was moderated by Caro Maurer MW, who has close contacts to the Turkish wine scene. The wines for the tasting were provided by Evren Tonguc of the importing company Weinatolien in cooperation with Turkish wineries. The culinary offer came from Taskin Koc of Wein Werk, a family-run caterer with a wine store and wine bar. Gunnar Oswald from the Cologne WineBank, a meeting place for wine lovers, made their premises in the historic vaulted cellar available free of charge, as did all those involved in this charity tasting.
The total proceeds of 4,000 Euros went entirely to Ahbap Derneği (NGO), currently one of the most active and helpful organizations in the earthquake region.
