Our Vineyards - Sula Vineyards

Our Vineyards


In 1996, Rajeev Samant planted the first wine grapes in Nashik, and today, it is India's premier wine-growing region. Sula's owned and contracted vineyards are home to some of India's finest grapes and the site of the latest in viticulture innovation and technology.    

Our vineyards make up our foundation and are the home ground for our inventions and experiments. Picturesque and designed to give you an all-immersive glimpse into wine, each vineyard hopes to delight and inspire. 

Nashik – Also known as India’s Napa valley, is home to Sula’s estate vineyards and is India’s most famous vineyard. 

Situated in the Western Ghats, at an altitude of 600 metres above sea level, Nashik's soil is of volcanic origin, ranging from weathered basalt to red laterite to heavy clay. The heavier soils are closer to the Godavari river beds while the lighter crumbly weathered red soils are closer to the northern hilly part of the region. Vineyards in proximity to hills or rivers have markedly different microclimates- the best example being Dindori, which further reflects in the quality of the wine produced here. The cool nights of Nashik ensure high levels of acid in the grapes, while warm days ensure optimum ripeness of the grapes, resulting in perfect growing conditions and terroirs for premium wine grapes.

Dindori – The future of exquisite Indian red wine.

This picturesque sub-district of Nashik features gentle hills of red laterite and basalt rock. Well-drained soils on the slopes give way to heavier, clay soils on the valley floors. Clean air, plenty of monsoon rain and a cool climate all contribute to Dindori's suitability for quality vineyards. Dindori is one of the best regions for the cultivation of red wine grapes since the crop requires relatively lighter soils. This region is most known for producing Sula's premium red grapes like the Syrah (Shiraz), Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon. 

Our delectable RĀSĀ Cabernet Sauvignon is carefully hand harvested from our Dindori estate. The RĀSĀ Cabernet Sauvignon is produced each vintage, making this a true collector's edition wine. The Dindori collection by Sula includes three wine variants -
Dindori Reserve Viognier , Dindori Reserve Chardonnay and Dindori Reserve Shiraz.
