Wine Tour in India

Viticulture, the cultivation of grapes and grape vines; grape growing in India has a history that dates back to the Bronze Age time period of the Indus Valley Civilization (IVC). 

During those good old days, grapevines were considered to have been brought in from the Persian Empire (now the Islamic Republic of Iran). 

Wineries in India

The first acknowledged reference of wine making was in the late 4th century BCE compositions of Chanakya (also known as Kautilya or Vishnu Gupta) who was the advisor of Chandragupta Maurya, the founder of the Maurya Empire. 

Wine Grapes

A multitude of farms of grapevines where wine grapes are produced were developed across Kashmir, Baramati (Pune, Maharashtra) and Surat (Gujarat). During the year 1833, for the first time, Indian wines were exhibited at the Calcutta International Exhibition to a tremendous reception.

The early 1980s is considered as the most important period in the modern wine industry of India as the notable Tonia Group was launched in the West Indian state of Goa.

The Tonia Group imported vinifera grape varieties like Cabernet Sauvignon (one of the world's most sought-after red wine grape varieties), Chardonnay (green-skinned grapevine variety), Pinot Blanc (white wine grape), Pinot noir (red wine grape variety) and Trebbiano also known as Ugni Blanc (white grape) and commenced making sparkling and still wines. 

Today India is the home of some of the finest vineyards in the world. Indian vineries are cutting-edge in terms of technology and produce some remarkable vintages.
