Situated in Nashik, India's largest grape-growing region, Sula Vineyards 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 now cultivates Shiraz and Zinfandel
amongst other international varieties and is broadly recognised as India's premium
Since its inception Sula has been working to integrate a wide array of measures at its
own 97 hectare 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.
The grapes were fermented in stainless steel, extracting colour and tannins whilst
preserving the varietal characteristics of Zinfandel. Following fermentation, the wine
was aged in neutral oak barrels for a minimum of three months, prior to bottling.
