Definition of Region–“A territory that exhibits certain uniformity.” In the map of Turkey (below)
The uneven north Anatolian terrain running along the Black Sea resembles a narrow but long belt. The land of this region is approximately one-sixth of Turkey's total land area.
The Marmara region covers the area encircling the Sea of Marmara and includes the entire European part of Turkey, as well as the northwest of the Anatolian plain. Whilst the region is the smallest of the regions of Turkey after the Southeast Anatolia region, it has the highest population density of all the regions.
The Aagean region extends from the Aegean coast to the inner parts of western Anatolia. There are significant differences between the coastal areas and those inland, in terms of both geographical features and economic and social aspects.
In the Mediterranean region, located in the south of Turkey, the western and central Taurus Mountains suddenly rise up behind coastline. The Amanos mountain range is also in the area.
The Central Anatolian region is exactly in the middle of Turkey and gives the appearance of being less mountainous compared with the other regions. The main peaks of the region are Karadag, Karacadag, Hasandag and Erciyes (3,917 metres).
The Eastern Anatolian Region is Turkey's largest and highest region. About three-fourths of it is at an altitude of 1,500-2,000 meters. Eastern Anatolia is composed of individual mountains as well as of whole mountain ranges, with vast plateaus and plains. There are numerous inactive volcanoes in the region, including Nemrut, Suphan, Tendurek and Turkey's highest peak, Mount Agri (Ararat), which is 5,165 meters high.
The Southeast Anatolia region is notable for the uniformity of its landscape, although the eastern part of the region is comparatively more uneven than its western areas.
German wine regions are produce grapes that differ from one region to another. This is due to differences in soil, daily sun light, angle of sun, slope to the sun, wind and breezes, rainfall, temperature, and grape varietal plants.
