It has been 15 years for the Sula sun. The leading Indian wine producing company recently celebrated the anniversary of Sula Vineyards in much fanfare and excitement at the rooftop bar of the St.Regis Hotel, Asilo in Mumbai. The event also marked the launch of a limited edition sparkling wine- Brut Tropicale, a Blanc de Noir sparkling rose produced from the delicate grape variety Pinot Noir. The wine is available in Rs 1,050 in Mumbai, Pune, Bengaluru and Delhi, and Rs 1,000 in Goa.
The limited edition bottle has a beautiful Indian theme packaging which will stand out in shelves of the liquor stores across the country, just in time for the season of festivities.
Sula vineyards have come a long way since the introduction of its first vintage in 2000. Besides registering a strong double-digit growth YOY in the domestic market and worldwide presence spreading across to 30 countries, the company certainly seems to be on the right path. The latest export markets include Belgium, Jamaica and Denmark.
Besides a strong profitable domestic wine portfolio, the company this year also forayed into the spirits segment with the launch of its premium brandy brand ‘Janus’. The ever-expanding import division Sula Selections portfolio was reshuffled recently and it now boasts of some very interesting new brands such as Mud House (from New Zealand) and Kumala (from South Africa). The launch of Ruffino prosecco, Hardys Stamp of Australia collection has been the talk of the town for some time now.
It certainly looks like a good year for Sula Vineyards. And these spirited celebrations only indicate that Rajeev Samant is one happy wineman.
