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