Summary of My visit

I travelled from Mumbai to Nashik by road. I didn’t opt to stay at Sula resort so had to pay for the wine tour and tasting. The Place was good but totally commercialized. Sula lacks the raw appeal. The place was filled with people taking photographs everywhere since it was a weekend.

The best part of the tour was wine tasting where you know the right way of tasting a wine. It was a good experience. Rest the food, ambience and the vineyards were Ok.

What Wines to Buy

White Wine – The Dindori Reserve Viognier is the best you can buy from Sula. It’s a wine showcasing lychee, apricot and peach notes.

Red Wine – Cabernet Shiraz – It has a rich deep purple colour, and an enticing aroma of spice, smokiness coupled with blueberries and blackberries.
