From the lunch which happens on a farmhouse to the ingredients used in the food, everything is homegrown. While day one includes indulging in the rich Khandeshi cuisine and a long {two hours, to be precise} win- tasting session to leave us hic-hic-hurraying, day two will inform us about the intricacies of wine-making. It also involves a cook-off which takes place on a farm.

Why Should I Go?

Nashik, the wine capital of India is famous for the diverse range of wines produced in its sprawling vineyards. We think this tour would be a good way to delve deeper into wine culture. After all, we can’t be the only ones wondering why people smell the wine before drinking.

On the other hand, Khandeshi cuisine is an interesting mix of spices. A treat for the spice-lovers, it’ll treat you to Sat pudyanchi amti (Curry with stuffed balls. The stuffing is usually a mixture of 7 spices) or Kala Masala Chicken. We can only imagine the burst of flavours this cuisine will be.

#LBBTip: The organisers ask you about the food preferences beforehand and take special requests like cycling tours to the nearby dam. They’ll also arrange for stay as they have tie-ups with nearby hotels.

When: Weekends. They also take weekday requests. Notify them a week in advance.
