The soul of Indian Soil Carefully Crafted into our Boutique wines
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.

Prince Michel Vineyard and Winery was founded 32 years ago in 1982 and remains one of the oldest and largest wineries in Virginia, Brad Nicholson said, director of marketing and tourism at Prince Michel. He said Frenchman Jean Leducq and his wife Sylvian came to Madison and fell in love with its natural beauty. Along with a passion for winemaking and Virginia’s resemblance to their home country, the Leducqs decided to create Prince Michel.
