|The Chicago Tribune ran a story on the Indian wine scene on November 14th which mentions Sommelier India. The article talks of how wine used to be as foreign an idea as snow and how wine was thought to be wimpy because it did not pack the punch of whisky.
Fortunately, India has moved on. Wine is becoming increasingly popular and is considered an acquired taste by those who want to project an air of sophistication.
It’s invading the drawing rooms of the upper middle classes and hopefully one day the dhabas too. In countries like Spain and Italy, wine gained popularity as the common man’s drink of choice after all.
