Sula Vineyards, Nashik.
The vineyards of Nashik, around four hours from Mumbai, offer a wonderful weekend break or short trip away for anyone with an interest in wine. I visited Sula Vineyards last year and enjoyed it immensely.
A wine enthusiast friend of mine, who's greatly involved in the industry, has started running vineyard tours to Nashik from Pune and Mumbai. These well organized tours cater to small groups of 2-6 people, and make visiting the wineries a breeze.
The tours depart Saturday mornings and return on Sunday afternoons. Door to door transport, one night's accommodation, visits to three vineyards, and wine tastings are included in the cost. Prices start from 2,225 rupees ($48) per person for a group of six, staying in a budget hotel. If you want to take your own car, this price is reduced to 1,262 rupees ($27) per person.
More information is available from the Black Grape Holidays website.
