Early Beginnings of Mountain View
In 1996, with the help of wine consultant from California we imported ten different wine grape
varieties of vitis vinifera family from a certified nursery in California, U.S.A. After
carefully evaluating their performance, we selected five varieties for commercial plantation on
twenty five acres of Phadatre Estate Vineyards in Nasik Valley.
Wine Grape Varieties
This was the first successful attempt ever in the entire Nashik Valley. Since then these varieties
have spread to other grape growing areas of Maharashtra and other neighboring states.
We proudly take the credit of introducing these wine grape varieties in Nashik Valley
which has now become the wine capital of India.
Development Approach - Working with the Local Farmers
We, at Mountain View, have always believed in sharing our knowledge and experience with other grape growers. We are
committed to the cause of upliftment of the poor farmers from villages. From time to time, several seminars
and group discussions have been arranged for the benefit of the farmers. This has resulted into several thousand acres of
new plantations of wine grape varieties not only in Maharashtra but also in the neighboring states. We receive enormous
satisfaction in knowing that we have been instrumental in initiating a movement for the development of a new wine industry,
an agro based food processing industry, which has the potential of revolutionizing the entire rural agricultural economy of
western Maharashtra and Marathwada. This very feeling has been the source of iinspiration for us to work even harder for the
overall development of this industry.
To be able to survive and persist in our endeavor to experiment and then successfully set up not only vineyards but also a
boutique winery for producing premium quality wines of international standard from our estate grown grapes, we needed to put
in more than just hard work. It required careful planning and research, at times risk taking without being reckless, daring
to be different and unlike most other industries, to be driven by passion rather than sheer profit motive. Now, as we are
getting out of the woods and finally getting on the path of success, it could breed arrogance in us; instead it has created
price, balanced with humility and confidence, countered with reality.

Free Wine Testing RESIDENTS OF Chinon, France, have made the most of their illustrious native son, François Rabelais, attaching his name to schools, hospitals, streets and even restaurants and bars. The last two seem particularly fitting since the 16th-century writer and doctor was nearly as famous for his appetite as he was for his prose. A fan of local wines, Rabelais could also pen a pretty good tasting note. In one example, he compared the wines of Chinon to taffeta.

Now I know you have bills to pay, college loans to defray and retirement plans to fund.
Wine Testing Tour But would you be upset if I made one little irresponsible-ish suggestion ? that you invest just a small percentage of that refund in your wine education? I mean, when else can you do it? And if life is too short to drink bad wine, it?s surely long enough for one little splurge.
Wine Testing Tour India It?s easy to be cynical and believe, as a friend once told me ? that any wine priced over $15 a bottle is just the winemaker?s ego.

Sometimes I think my job title should include “detective,” as in “Peter Dills: Wine Detective.” I guess, for that matter, most of us who carry a pen could fall into that category. Things that I assume are common knowledge might be unknown to those of you who just have a glass or two of wine now and then.
White Wine In India Think about this: Where does your wine come from? Where does the label say it is from? There is a simple way to know by looking at the label if the wine is estate grown and, generally speaking, the label will tell you the percentage of that grape.
Wine Testing Tour For example: “Estate grown” means that 100 percent of the grapes come from the winery even if that winery owns vineyards in different regions, i.e. Paso Robles and Lodi. On the other hand, do the grapes come from a small section of Sonoma or Napa — which are given AVA labels; an American Viticultural Area is a designated wine grape-growing region — or can they be pinpointed to the Alexander Valley, a region on the edge of Sonoma? If the latter case, then it has to be at least 85 percent wine from Alexander Valley.
