The Great Grover Wine Festival’s inaugural event in Bangalore on February 21 drew an enthusiastic crowd of people who were out for a good time. There was plenty of activity to keep almost everybody entertained, including the ever popular grape stomping.
The spacious grounds of Bangalore’s Bhartiya City with their expanse of green lawn and a light breeze blowing as the sun set formed the perfect backdrop.
There were food stalls, gifts and handicrafts on sale, live music and attractions galore, not forgetting, a full complement of Grover Zampa wines. As dusk fell the tempo picked up with throbbing music while performances by artists like Swarathma, Ananth Menon & Trio and MadOrangeFireworks ensured that everyone was swinging.
Talking about the festival, Sumedh Singh Mandla, CEO, Grover Zampa Vineyards (pictured with Reva K Singh, Bunty Singh & Alok Chandra) said, “We are delighted to create this grand wine and performing art festival and to showcase our award-winning wines to so many wine lovers.
