skeenan, that varies according to the restaurant in question, but you can expect to pay around 7-10 TL. Have a look. "imbatrestaurant.com/index.php/…beverage-menu".

Thanks Enigma - the prices look similar to UK and Ireland, but of course much more expensive than the low-taxed Mediterranean countries.

A decent bottle at a small market runs 25-35 TL if you want to have a sip in your room and then venture out for food. Our favorite grapes were “kalicik karesi”, “bogazkere” and “öküzgözü.”

Skeenan, Most things being relative, imho, you cannot get a decent glass of wine at a decent restaurant in Istanbul for less than 15 TL. But I do not consider Angora, Cankaya, Villa Doluca, Yakut decent wines. These should be at the 10-15 TL price range.

Check for Doluca Kav, Doluca DLC, Kavaklidere Selection, Egeo and some Sevilen ,Kayra, Lykia, Karaoglan, Terra, Turasan, Corvus, Sarafin brands.

As Betsy above says, "kalecik Karasi" and "Okuzgozu" are good Turkish grapes as well as Karaoglan. Bogazkere is more tanini and not as smooth alone but fine mixed with Okuzgozu. Turkish Merlots, Cabernets are OK also. For whites, Sultaniye and Narince grapes are decent.
