Then comes the second day and it was a Sunday!
On a quest to explore different hotels, we checked ourselves into 'The Renn Hotel' formerly know as the 'Lily Sarovar Portico'. This one was a decent hotel but the TV failed to have a subscription for the English Channels. (Trust me, post the new service provider laws, this has been the reason why we would not recommend quite a few hotels.)
We headed to Infant Jesus Shrine and attended a 12 noon mass. From there we moved to 'Sula Vineyards'.
We booked an Ola Rickshaw that took us to destination with a price of Rs. 300 approximately. Sula Vineyards, for those who do not know about this place, is located in an extremely remote location. (Muddy roads, no shops in sight, not a single rickshaw to take you back and fields on either side)
Our main worry was to get a transport at our disposal. Never mind, we entered the very famous 'Sula Vineyards' where we were charged 200 Rs at the entrance which was of course redeemable currency.
Hungry as we were, we decided to eat at the hotel which is located inside the 'Sula' premises and then head on to the tour of the winery.
The place, let me mention once again, we happened to choose it when there were no grapes being harvested and not to forget, the weather was what we would not call 'a pleasant one'.
Therefore the tour included 'a walk down the history of Sula and its inception', the wine making process and the most awaited tasting! (We did not get to see the wine making process as it wasn't the season for harvesting grapes)
We were given 6 types of wines and were taught the correct manner of savouring the beverage. The tour cost us 400 Rs. per person which included the tour and the tasting.
A wise choice on reminiscence, we decided to not but any wine from the very source of it, as it would be a task to carry it back to the hotel with no transport.
Call us lucky or what, we did manage to get a cab back to the hotel after a refreshing ice tea and pizza which we ordered while taking a seat on the portico restaurant of 'Sula'. It overlooks the vineyards and makes one feel great.
We headed back to the hotel, had an early dinner and hit the bed. The next day was pure lazing in the room as the other sights were pretty far from our place. We spent the day watching movies and eating of course.
Nashik, in a nutshell, has good weather, good food and good sights to see provided, you visit it in the monsoons or in the winter. We would visit it again and would recommend it to all!
