In the year 2000, Sula sold its first bottle – India’s first Sauvignon Blanc, and has since put the country on the global wine map. To mark the amazing first 15 years, Sula released its beautifully packaged, limited-edition festive season Brut Tropicale at Asilo, Mumbai, writes Suneeta Sodhi Kanga.
The unveiling took place with a spectacular ceremony and wowed all the guests. The sparkling wine flowed out of a larger-than-life digital psychedelic bottle into a Champagne fountain and trickled slowly down to fill every glass below.
Covered in paisley in riotous tropical colours, the limited edition Brut Tropicale is a Blanc de Noirs, a white Méthode Champenoise sparkler made from premium black grapes including Pinot Noir. The paisley motif – symbolic of life and eternity – has been interpreted and adopted as an auspicious motif for special occasions in India for centuries. The sparkling wine is fresh, fruity and very palatable indeed.
Rajeev Samant, Founder and CEO of Sula Vineyards, thanked all the guests for being part of the Sula success story and said, “Our only hope for the next 15 years is that Sula can continue making better wines and people who drink them happier!”
Firmly committed to remaining at the forefront of Indian wines, Sula continues to experiment with new varietals, engage in sustainable agriculture and support the local rural economy. The launch of the bottles is a commemoration of Sula’s success and its progress in the global wine market.
Sula, here’s looking forward to the next 15 years!
