Sula Vineyards History in Producing the Best Wines in India

Our History

Over the last 20 years, Sula has grown and established itself as a pioneer, innovator and leader in the Indian wine industry. From the sale of our first bottle of wine in 1999 to being the best wine brand in India, we’ve come a long way and today, our exquisite Sula wines have achieved a cult status the world over. We take pride in our winemaking process where time and patience are just as important as quality wine grapes. A labour of love, each bottle of Sula wine is nothing short of a work of art. Throughout our journey, we’ve achieved milestones and set new benchmarks with our carefully crafted range of wines. Join us on this journey as we continue to blaze new trails.
