Wine , be it the robust red, vintage white or the effervescent sparkling pink, has since time immemorial, celebrated good health and cheer. Known as the elixir of life, its refined quality and grace has the ability to turn the most ordinary cuisine into a connoisseurs delight! In the Indian context, wine has long enjoyed an elitist status, acquired from the west.
This however is now changing very fast. The Indian wine makers and grape growers have been steadily making inroads into the wine industry in the last 7 years with very promising and encouraging results.
The Indian brands are now strongly establishing themselves in the wine market and compare and comply with the international standards. Moreover, the industry is now looking towards serving not only the niche export market but also a very potentially profitable home market. In fact, the Indian wine industry is now ready to take the big leap. With a growth rate of 25 – 30 % per annum, wine drinking is now becoming a part of the urban Indian lifestyle. The rising levels of the standards of living and exposure to global trends and cultures have contributed greatly to this growth.
Nashik today has emerged as the Wine capital of India. A climate conducive, both to grape growing and wine making, along with favorable “ Grape Processing Industry Policy “ of the Maharashtra government, has made Nashik the hub of this industry.
The India Wine Show, organized every two years, in Nashik , has established itself as the premier wine event in the country.
