Have you had a taste for Himachali wines yet?

It so happened that, a few years ago, tones of apples were left to rot and were of no use. The Government thought of using these rotten apples for the purpose of making wine. Large amounts of rotten apples and other fruits like Plum strawberry, Kiwi and apples were sent to the Himachal Pradesh Marketing and Processing unit for the purpose of making wine. Over the years, there was an emergence of a new industry and now there is something for the tourists to feel excited about.

What's new for travellers?

The news is official now as cabinet of Himachal in a meeting has approved new licenses for setting up visitor center in wine manufacturing units. There has been an approval to conduct wine-tasting festivals as well.

According to sources, the new excise policy will be operational for nine months i.e. from 1st July 2021 to 31st March 2022. (It was extended from June to July because of the current Covid situation).
