A trip to Nashik- the wine capital of India
A trip to the Wine capital of the country Nashik is incomplete without visiting the vineyards. Situated in the Western Ghats, at an altitude of 600 metres above sea level, Nashik's soil is of volcanic origin. This coupled with the cool nights of Nashik ensure high level of acid in the grapes, while warm days ensure optimum ripeness of the grapes, resulting in perfect growing conditions and terrains for premium wine grapes. While there are close to 50 wineries in the state, the most popular ones include Sula Vineyards, York Winery, Vallonne, Soma Vineyards and Grover Zampa. You can choose to tour vineyards owned by any of these companies, while at the same time tasting some of their best wine selection and get discounts on the purchases. In the wine tasting section an expert will show you the correct method of holding the wine glass, observing the colour, taking in the aroma and finally the right way of tasting it! A few of the vineyards like Soma, also allow you to stomp grapes in vats, to experience the method of maceration used in traditional wine-making.
Also while savouring this adventure with wine, vineyards and a lot more you may be looking out for accommodation to heighten your experience, suiting your needs and taste.
