Popular for its vineyards, how can we not talk about the abundance of excellent and oh so aromatic wines that Nashik has to offer! While there’s a splendid array of wines found in the region, few restaurants have caught our attention for their exceptional servings of fine wine. These are the types of wines to try and where:

1. Sparkling Rose @ Grover Zampa

The most awarded sparkling wine from India, this wine has hints of cherries and strawberries! It tastes a bit light & creamy initially but follows up with the acidity and a punch of fruity flavours. The wine is pale pink in colour and leaves a lingering aroma of the red fruits.
