About Sula Vineyards
Nestled within the heartland of Nashik, India, is the renowned Sula Vineyards. Established in 1998, it encompasses a whopping 1800 acres sprawling over the beautiful Nasik countryside. The vineyard is acknowledged as India's leading wine producer, revolutionising the wine industry, bringing a wave of viticulture to a region earlier seen as inconsequential.
The birth of Sula Vineyards is steeped in an intriguing tale. Its founder, Rajeev Samant, left his successful Silicon Valley career to embrace his passion for wine, thus turning the wine industry of India on its head. His pioneering vision, bolstered by winemaker Kerry Damskey's Californian wine expertise, gradually transformed Nashik into India's top wine region, with Sula at the helm.
With its state-of-the-art winery, Sula adopts sustainable wine-making practices. The team focuses on using only handpicked, local grapes, irrigating with recycled water, and creating compost from waste – a holistic approach that enhances quality production. Sula Vineyard’s wine range is vast; from light and fruity whites to full-bodied and spicy reds. Noteworthy are the Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling, Chenin Blanc, Zinfandel and some impressive sparkling varieties too.
Beyond creation of wine, Sula Vineyard has become a popular tourist destination, pulling crowds through its elaborate tasting tours. It's much more than just a vineyard, it’s a comprehensive experience marked by the refreshing charm of the Indian countryside. It also houses a fancy eatery, Soleil, which serves an eclectic mix of Indian and continental flavours, perfectly paired with their fine wines.
Finally it would be amiss not to mention the SulaFest; this annual event where wine meets music, sees enthusiasts throng from all over the world to soak in the vibrant atmosphere, sip on the finest wines and groove to eclectic music.
A trip to Nasik is simply incomplete without visiting Sula Vineyards: a truly elegant culinary experience steeped in sheer luxury and class. Imbibing the spirit of wine in every sense, it continually refines the understanding of Indian wine. This, has essentially placed India firmly on the global wine map.
