Sula Vineyards is at the forefront of the Indian Wine revolution. This premier wine company offers a range of wines of grapes cultivated at their own vineyard. In addition, Sula Vineyards imports a number of international wines and spirits. Over the years, the estate has developed to offer a Tasting Room, a Mediterranean-style 50-seater restaurant in association with India's leading Italian restaurant brand, Little Italy, their own Indian restaurant, "Soma" as well as an Amphitheatre that hosts a number of events including the famous annual Sula Fest. Sula Vineyards additionally hosts a 32 room getaway resort replete with luxury accommodations, a swimming pool, all-day-dining at Cafe Rose and their very own spa.

SULA WINES

The wines are made from grapes grown at Nashik and Dindori estates, as well as from those sourced from local farmers operating under the guidance of Sula’s team of experts.

Sula Reds
Their finest wine, the Rasa Shiraz leads a rich and satisfying range of reds, including the flagship Dindori Reserve Shiraz, the Zinfandel, Cabernet Shiraz and Merlot - Malbec - all beautifully crafted to accompany both Indian and international cuisine.

Sula Whites
From India’s first Sauvignon Blanc & Chenin Blanc, to their famous Dindori Reserve Viognier and the recently launched Riesling, we take our white wines very seriously. 

Sula Rosé
Our Sula Zinfandel Rosé is perfect for every summer occasion, and the fruity, easy-drinking Mosaic and Madera Rosé completes our popular rosé line-up.

Sula Sparkling

Made in the true méthode champenoise, the Sula Brut leads the range of sparkling wines. And our lighter Seco suits everyday celebrations.

Sula Dessert
Sweet wines are typically served with dessert, fruit, or even as an aperitif. Our Late Harvest Chenin Blanc is a wonderful conclusion to any evening.

THE STORY

Situated 180 km northeast of Mumbai, Nashik is India’s largest grape-growing region, but had traditionally never been used to grow wine grapes. Wondering why, an enterprising, Stanford-trained engineer named Rajeev Samant quit his hi-tech Silicon Valley job in 1993 to do some investigating.

A little research quickly showed that the Nashik climate was not only perfect for wine grapes, but was also on par with winegrowing regions in Spain, California, and Australia. His determination doubled and Rajeev returned to California in search of a winemaker. In Sonoma County he found Kerry Damskey, an eminent Californian winemaker, who enthusiastically agreed to help start a winery on Rajeev’s 30 acre family estate.

In 1997, the duo took the revolutionary step of planting French Sauvignon Blanc and Californian Chenin Blanc, varieties that had never before been planted in India. The first Sula wines, released in 2000, were widely acclaimed as India’s best white wines.

Since its inception, Sula has rapidly established itself as India’s Leading Premium Wine Producer, helping spark a wine revolution that has seen consumption grow at 25% annually and several new wineries come up in the Nashik area. In November 2002, Wine Spectator - the world’s No.1 wine magazine - did a five-page feature on Sula, a proud first for an Indian winery.

A second winery with three times the capacity of the first was completed in late 2004 to keep up with demand, and a third million litre winery started operations in 2006. Sula has expanded from the original 30 acre family estate to about 1,800 acres (owned and contracted) under plantation, both in Nashik as well as in nearby Dindori, India’s upcoming wine region. 

Firmly committed to remaining at the forefront of Indian wines, Sula continues to experiment with new varietals, engage in sustainable agriculture, support the local rural economy, and, of course, make wines of outstanding quality and superb value.
