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.

Wine From India MEDFORD, Ore. (AP) - The winsome wines of southern Oregon are gathering acclaim far beyond the Cascades and Siskiyous.
Wines Of India An industry once summed up by a collection of one-offs in Ashland, Cave Junction, Roseburg and Ruch during the 1970s now boasts 121 wineries and 226 vineyards on 5,886 planted acres in Jackson, Josephine and Douglas counties.

Greek white wines are improving with every vintage, discovers Panos Kakaviatos, who suggests 10 wines to try at under £25 per bottle.
Red Wine In India Situated between 32 ? and 42 ? north, Greek vineyards are some of the world’s hottest. While this might suggest suitability to the production of red wine, Greece in fact makes a surprising amount of white. Coming from some 65,000ha (hectares) of plantings, more than 60% of Greek wine produced is white: approximately 1.83 million hectolitres of the total 2.9 million hl produced.
Wine From India The key to success with white wines in hot countries such as Greece is exploiting cool microclimates. Grapes ripen more slowly in cooler terroirs in mountainous vineyards, developing more interesting flavours as a result. Wines whose labels include the names Mantinia, Amyndeo or Nemea can be good examples. Mountainous areas in Nemea range between 250m to over 1,000m above sea level. Not only do they give rise to variations in wine styles, but they also offer amazing views as one drives through the terrain on sometimes perilous tracks, as I did on a recent visit.

If watching Super Bowl 50 at Santa Clara’s Levi’s Stadium inspires you to rush off to California, take time out to tackle these off-the-beaten-track vineyards in the buzzing Bay Area.
India Vineyard The first sign that wine tasting south and east of the San Francisco Bay is going to be a bit different from the slick facilities of Napa in the north is, literally, a sign on the side of the road. White letters, hand-painted on four weathered boards nailed to a post, read: “Open. BoaVentura de Caires.” Whether the pile of rocks at the foot of the post is there to add a certain gravitas to the entrance or to keep the sign from falling over is unclear.
Red Wine In India But the winery, one of several dozen in the Livermore Valley — less than 35 miles northeast of Santa Clara and San Jose — has been highly recommended by locals. So my friends and I proceed up the unimposing drive towards the farm, where vintner Brett Caires lives with his wife, Monique, their three children, and two rescue dogs, Mac and Olive.
