Indian Wine Shopping

Shopping for groceries in India is not like in Europe or the US. Most of it happens on the streets at small stalls, or hole-in-the-wall places that would never qualify as supermarkets anywhere else in the world. Luckily, we have found a slightly more upscale establishment for grocery shopping, called Nature's Basket. More importantly, in their basement they also have a pretty decent little wine store.

The Red Line-Up

Late Sunday afternoon, I went on a shopping spree there, and came out with twelve bottles of Indian wine. Yes, here you can happily shop for alcohol on a late Sunday afternoon! I bought eight bottles of reds, and four whites. The twelve bottles came from just three producers: Sula Vineyards, Fratelli Wines and Grover Zampa. These three companies dominate the Indian premium wine market. Now everything is loaded into the wine fridge and tasting notes will follow in due course. I am hopeful that we will find a few new favourites here.
