Having an unbeatable location in Istanbul with breathtaking views of the Bosphorus, Aqua Restaurant at the Four Seasons Hotel Istanbul at the Bosphorus aims to take the guest experience to a higher level with its enriched wine menu.
In the new wine book, 825 varieties of Turkish and international wines are presented to wine aficionados who would like to explore different colours and textures from various regions. Keeping in mind that one of the most important criteria for a wine lover is the quality of the by-the-glass selection, the new menu has an extensive list of offerings, including Champagne choices.
Turkey offers an array of different wines and styles, including intriguing domestic varieties. The menu is lined up according to Turkish, Italian and French wine regions and grapes. It also includes premium selections from Chile, Spain and New Zealand; all known for their authentic grapes and characteristics.
To provide a memorable wine experience in Istanbul, the passionate beverage team at Four Seasons Hotel Istanbul at the Bosphorus has created a specially designed wine room, which is available for guest visits on request. Besides its local and international exclusive wine selections, this 125 square metre (1,350 square foot) cellar is also reserving premium Champagne options.
Guests may experience this extensive wine menu not only at Aqua Restaurant but also at YALI Lounge or YALI Mezze & Wine Bar while enjoying a pleasant get together with friends and loved ones. Putting a new spin on wine tasting, the bar invites guests to experience twenty-two types of exclusive local wines from all around Turkey by the glass in a casual and relaxing atmosphere.
The laid-back environment lends itself to a good socialising setting with a less crowded feel and more intimate appeal at a prime location on the Bosphorus, combining wine with gourmet mezze selections. Showcasing the authenticity of Istanbul, the mezze alternatives range from hot to cold, and fish and meat to vegetables, suiting each palate.
