Sula Vineyards

Vineyard in Nasik

Sula Vineyards, located 15km west of Nasik, commands around 65% of the Indian wine market. It offers a slick, professional tour (around 45 minutes) of its impressive estate and high-tech facilities. This is rounded off with a wine-tasting session (five/six wines ₹250/350) that features its best drops, including at least one from its top-end Rasa line.

The cafe here has commanding views of the countryside (though only snacks are sold and it does get very busy); for meals the on-site Italian restaurant Little Italy is recommended. A new 23-room resort in the converted facilities of its original winery is set to open in 2017 and its gorgeous new Beyond by Sula Resort is a few kilometers away.
