Wine tourism is the new buzzword in Nasik, around four hours from Mumbai. There now almost 50 wineries in and around Nasik, and excitingly for wine lovers, many Nasik vineyards now have tasting rooms that are open to the public. The vineyards fan out in all directions from Nasik though, so you'll need a car to reach them. Either that, or take a wine tour. Black Grape Holidays and Unity Wine Tours both run reputable tours to Nashik vineyards from Mumbai.
