Sula Vineyards, Nashik



Sula Vineyards is a winery located in Nashik but at a considerable distance from Nashik city. It is a lovely drive with beautiful scenery through the rural areas. It is a 1800 acre estate.

My family and I left from Bombay by car and stayed at Igatpuri(Mystic Valley Spa and Resort-lovely place to rejuvenate ) which is some 50km from Nashik. One will have to take the Nashik bypass which one HUGE long road...So keep your eyes open if you dont want to miss your turn !


Sula Vineyards is one huge estate. It houses the winery, the tasting room, the cellars, the manufacturing units, restaurants, amphitheatres and their resort, Beyond.


  For a fee of Rs.350 per head we got the Winery Tour and the Tasting room where we were told about the history of Sula, the kind of grapes grown, the types of wines exported etc.

First we were shown the tanks where the wine was normally kept, second we were taken to the barrel room which was ENORMOUS.

 Next came the wine tasting in the Tasting Room. Here we were taught how to differentiate between the 6 wines offered to us.


This tour took us about 45 minutes. A souvenir and wine shop is there if you like to take home some memories of your trip to Sula Vineyards !

Part 1 - Around Goa in 72 hours

Others would ask, “Goa jaake peeya nhi toh kya kiya?”. I, on the other hand would ask, “Goa jaake ghuma nhi toh kya kiya?” Now one would tell you that churches, beaches, drinking and clubbing are the only things to go for in Goa. But that isn’t the case at all. There sure is a lot more to do than just sit in your room or laze around the beach. Especially when you’ve driven 14 hours to reach your destination. Phew.

So what did I do? I took the car (and then scooty; with a GA registration) and drove full North Goa to South Goa. Out of the 1314kms that we drove, 100kms happened within the state in 3 days.
Day 1 we went to Baga beach in the morning but since neither I nor my dad had any plans of getting wet that morning, we headed to Fort Aguada, past Sinquerim beach for some sightseeing.


 This place is around 10kms (30mins) from Baga. It’s up on a mountain/hill and is a famous tourist spot. How’d I know? The number of cars were a lot and it felt like half of the family tourist crowd cam…

1st road trip – 1314kms – Mumbai-Goa-Mumbai

The journey is more important than the destination. I learnt driving 2 years ago (enrolled for a driving class 3 days after my 18th birthday) and since then I’ve driven on every possible type of road. But I wanted more. Flying by air didn’t excite me. I wanted to look out of the window to trees and open roads; not clouds. 2 weeks ago after lots of pleading or logical reasoning (as I like to put it), I finally convinced my parents to accompany me on a road trip to Goa. At first, they were a bit apprehensive of the length of the journey (owing to previous bad experiences with bus travelling), but then again, you gotta do what you want to do.

The route we selected was Mumbai – Pune – Satara – Kolhapur – Amboli Ghat – Baga, Goa. We only did one stopover for the night at Pune. The rest was a continuous drive with only a 45 minute halt for lunch before the start of the 73km long, 3.5 hour Amboli Ghat.


Note: Just after the food mall at Lonavala and before the start of the ghats, is a small s…

Of Goan Food, Drinks, ‘Feels’ and Stay

I went to Goa with my parents. And trust me, it was fun. For one, you really don’t have to worry about money when you’re out travelling, shopping, eating or drinking. Secondly, you have a 90% success rate of going to all the places YOU want to go to, instead of compromising for the sake of your friends.

Now I stayed in Goa for 4 nights, two of which were in Baga and the other two in Candolim. Both places were booked via Airbnb. One advice: Avoid booking a hotel room, even if it’s near a beach (I don’t understand people’s obsession with beaches; they’re quite dirty and crowded). Instead,.......
