The grapes to produce Zinfandel Maharashtra Sula Vineyards were fermented in temperature controlled stainless steel tanks in order to preserve the varietal characteristics of Zinfandel Maharashtra Sula Vineyards.
Since its inception Sula has been working to integrate a wide array of measures at its 97 hectare estate vineyard and within its winery to minimise the environmental impact of not only its farming, but also its processing and distribution practices. In the vineyard the vines are trained on a high trellising system, which maximises airflow. The red soil is composed of clay and gravel, which has a high iron content and offers the vine good drainage.
Sula Vineyards is situated in Nashik, India’s largest grape-growing region. The winery was set up in 1997 by Rajeev Samant & Kerry Damsky. They pioneered the growing of the French grape varieties Sauvignon Blanc and Chenin Blanc, which were first released in 2000 to wide acclaim as India’s best white wines. Sula Vineyards now cultivates Shiraz and Zinfandel amongst other international varieties and is broadly recognised as India’s premium wine producer.
