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.

All of this lovely fruit is laced with hints of white and black pepper, spice box and freshly cut tobacco leaf, as well as touches of anise and allspice.
Wine To India
For sheer variety, quality and value on a grand scale, France's vast Bordeaux wine-growing region leads the way. Thousands of producers offer terrific selections across crisp dry whites, refreshing rosés, beautifully balanced red blends and luscious sweet dessert wines.
India Wines Regrettably for consumers, recent decades have seen the prices for Bordeaux's famed Classified Growths reaching astronomic heights. Global conspicuous consumption has transformed the wines from beverages intended primarily for enjoyment with food.
Wines In India Expanding Asian markets and the dubious consumer fetish for wines with high numerical ratings help explain the development. Even so, legions of lesser-known, but tremendously competent, Bordeaux producers still consistently deliver marvelous values.
