On Thursday, November 8th, we will be celebrating the annual Bring Your Own Bottle Night at 19:00 on the 31st floor of the Hilton Hotel Izmir overlooking the entire Aegean Sea. This hotel is a 2 minute walk from the official conference hotel, the Swissotel, just to keep things convenient.

This unofficial EWBC event is a very relaxed and informal opportunity to network with a bottle of your favorite wine in hand. This bottle can be of personal significance to you or simply be an interesting wine you sourced locally.

As an event outside of the EWBC schedule, the dinner costs 28 euros per person, which covers the meal, space, corkage and tip. Below, you will find a means to pay for the event. We are choosing this route to make everyone’s life a little easier, including our own, but please remember to bring your printed ticket once you register, as you cannot pay at the door.

This year’s menu is as follows:

Bergama Region Tulum Cheese
Vine Leave with Pine Nuts and Currents
Ezine White Cheese
Pepper Dolma
Zucchini Dolma
Artichoke with Potatos and Carrots
Broad Beans in Olive Oil
Purslane with Yoghurt

  • WendyCW

    The BYOB night is always one of my favorite memories of the EWBC. Sharing and connecting through participants wine culture is a great kick-off to a weekend shared with fellow #winelover

  • Jonathan Hesford

    Now I just have to make sure I have check-in bags for every step of the journey. I’ll be flying from France to England to Germany, back to England, to the Ukraine and on to Turkey. Is there any way to post the BYO bottle(s) to the hotel?

    • Gabriella Opaz

      Jonathon, unfortunately, you’ll have to bring it with you as you cannot ship directly into directly. A pain, yes, but the only way to do it sadly.

    Dear BYOBers … I’m bringing my thong and an awesome bottle or two from Etna! (no spanking!)

    Yes! Now all I have to do is decide which bottle I should bring and whether to wear clothes or not.
