Wine is a relative new comer on the dining scene in India, with Indian wineries still finding their place amongst other more established new-world wineries. Whilst imported wines are available, it can be hard to find a good selection to choose, some places worth trying include:
1. Vinoteca By Sula: Sula is one of the oldest wineries in India, and Vinoteca is its foray into a wine bar format. Located in the central suburb of Worli, it is a nice place to relax, enjoy a good variety of authentic tapas with a chilled glass of wine. They even have a selection of “Wine Flights” that give you the opportunity to sample some local and imported wines to help you choose which one to settle in with for the evening.
2. Botticino at the Trident: Located in the business district of Bandra Kurla Complex (“BKC”) this Italian restaurant serves delicious Mediterannean food alongside an extensive wine list. With both Indian wines and a wide selection of imported grape varieties, you can enjoy a long leisurely meal accompanied by your favourite Prosecco and ending with a cheeky grappa.
3. Indigo Colaba: Indigo Colaba has a hand-picked selection of wines that go well with their fine European cuisine. Start your meal with a chilled Pol Roger Brut NV champagne and then select from an extensive selection that includes wines from France, South Africa, USA, Spain, Italy and Australia, ranging from a 2006 Marlborough Pinot Gris from New Zealand to a 1995 Château Latour Cabernet Sauvignon. This long-standing restaurant in Mumbai also hosts wine tasting events with specially matched menus which are well worth trying.
