Sula — the most visited winery in the world

At Sula Vineyards in Nashik, India, there is a steady flow of visitors to the winery, all through the year, from those who stay for a few hours for a wine tour and wine tasting and perhaps a meal at one of the on-site restaurants, to those who spend a night or two at The Source, the guest accommodation located at the main winery complex. During the cooler months, between November and February, on a typical weekday there are about 600 visitors, and about 2000 on Saturdays, and another 2000 on Sundays. In summer the numbers fall, and during the monsoons they rise once again as the landscape is lush and the weather cool. The SulaFest, held during the first weekend of February, brings vast numbers of music lovers to Sula – about 14,000 people over two days!

Preparation for the festival starts several months in advance as the winery puts a detailed plan in action for the music groups who will perform and the food and wines to be served for all the visitors who make their way to the winery.
