|The third annual Shillong Wine Festival was held on November 11th highlighting different local wine.
Just before this, the Autumn Festival took place. Ajay Kumar Gothwal of Champagne Indage sent us a report. “The sleeping town of Jowai, Meghalaya suddenly came alive with the scintillating, start to the Week long autumn festival that is held every year.
A record-breaking gathering of drummers, unlimited food & wine, lively music – it certainly is a festival that you have to be a part of to believe it!
Starting on 28th October the festival took place in Jowai, Shillong (against the picturesque Umiam Lake) and Cherrapunji. And on a festival of such high caliber, how could Champagne Indage be not a part. Champagne Indage was present on all the days of the festival with its award winning wines, and no-one seemed to have had enough of them. Taste buds were tickled through a special counter for serving exclusive Champagne Indage wines.
Wines present were Marquise De Pompadour, Ivy White Zinfandel, Chantilli Chardonnay , Chantilli Cabernet Sauvignon, Riviera White Wine, Riviera Red Wine, Vin Ballet Red Wine, Vin Ballet White Wine, Figueira Port Wine, and last but not the least the very new VINO Red and White wine, which has taken the North-East by storm. Amidst ROT MAKING, ARCHERY and other events, the wines were enjoyed by people of all ages.
The enthusiasm to learn more about wines among the visitors to the Festival was really over-whelming. With the event coming to a rocking close on 5th November, it marked the end of a great week full of fine wine and music.”
