An expert's opinion

Here's a wine that truly helped put the Indian wine scene on the map, and also the first Indian Sauvignon Blanc to have ever been made. Like many people trying the wine for the first time I didn't know what to expect but it really took me by surprise; fresh, well made and with lots of character. The grapes come from the best wine producing region in India, Nasik, which at 600m above sea level helps explain some of the freshness here. Ideal for an aperitif or to suprise your guests with, so take a sip and you'll discover that wine really can be made all over the world!

The estate

Sula Vineyards

In 1993, Rajeev Samant resigned from his engineering job in Silicon Valley to pursue his dream of owning a vineyard in India. Some claimed it was a crazy project but Rajeev persisted and bought land in the Nasik region of India, which we now know today as the best wine-producing land available there. Today, Sula is *the* reference in Indian wine and the evidence is there for you to see and taste in the glass! Aside from producing top quality wine, the estate also organises music festivals, underwater restoration projects and even invests funds into the schools of local neighbourhoods; sign me up!
