Vinoteca by Sula is finally open for business. Conceptualised by Rajeev Samant of Sula vineyards, Vinoteca in Mumbai has been inspired by Spanish tavernas. Serving tapas and pintxos, this 50-seater bar in Worli has a versatile wine selection from both Sula and international producers at extremely affordable prices.
The interiors have been designed by Mumbai-based Ritu Nanda and Elsie Nanji, but the burgundy walls and the quirky light installation – made from 300 Sula Riesling bottles and candle bulbs – makes you feel you could be anywhere in the world.
The menu was created by Chef Silvia Grimaldo from Ibiza who has picked out finger foods such as grilled kingfish in garlic and tomato salad, patatas brava, calamari with aioli and quinoa salad with walnuts, figs and feta. Vinoteco has decided to focus on sharing plates made from fresh seasonal produce and organic ingredients sourced from Sula’s gardens. Not only that, each tapa comes with a suggested Sula wine pairing.
Apart from wines, they are also serving champagnes such as Dom Pérignon, Veuve Clicquot and Piper-Heidsieck and signature drinks such as a Grimaldo’s family recipe of a sparkling sangria and a hot chocolate and chilli infused dry martini.
