Nashik is the most prolific wine-producing area, located some 135 kilomteters north-east of Mumbai in the state of Maharashtra. The wine industry here has been growing steadily since the mid-1990s, and now there are around 40 vineyards spread throughout the area.

Nashik is affected by the South Asian Monsoon, a weather system which brings cool, moist air from the Indian Ocean. This collides with hot, dry air from the Thar Desert in the north of India. Heavy rain occurs between June and September. This corresponds with important stages of the northern hemisphere’s growing seasons. We take utmost care to ensure that budburst is delayed until after the monsoon is finished.
