Euphoria on the Euphrates: we head off on a journey to Anatolia’s Arabian frontier. Great escapes: we investigate the untold story of Pope John XXIII’s wartime work in Turkey. A madder quest – one man’s passion for Turkey red; the gallant Fred Burnaby, Gallipoli’s wines and surefire soups
In the first of a series on the great wines of Turkey and its ancient dominions, Kevin Gould visits Gallipoli. A land of heroes from Homeric times to the First World War, the peninsula has also for 3,000 years prided itself on its wines.
Home to the world’s oldest settlements, land of biblical prophets – the Tigris and Euphrates basin is a fabled but forgotten frontier. In a 30-page celebration, Manuel Çitac captures its splendour in photographs, while Min Hogg keeps a wry diary on her sortie to this hard-baked corner of Anatolia.
