We step away from Nashik for this one, to Holesalu, in Mysore district, so this is another convenient day trip for Bangaloreans. It’s not as fancy a set-up as you’d see in some of the Nashik wineries, so you do need to call ahead and tell them what you want. They will take you through the process of wine-making and arrange a wine-tasting session in the wine cellar. They have six wines – three red and three white. The entire schedule will take about four hours if you opt to have lunch there, as well. You also have the charming option of camping out on the lawn in front of the lake if you’d like to indulge in a couple of bottles. Can’t drive back after that!
