2. York Winery: Constructed in 2006, the York Winery is located close to Sula Vineyards and overlooks Gangapur Dam. With a focus on fruity and dry flavours as opposed to sweet wines, this place is gaining a lot of momentum and has recently won a lot of awards as well. The winery has a superb gold medal Reserve Shiraz, aged in oak, along with its new Arros reserve blend of shiraz and cabernet sauvignon that was released in 2014. This winery also has to its name York Sparkling Brut that was launched in the same year {2014} and is made from 100 per cent chenin blanc grapes. It also has an incredibly scenic and majestic tasting room and is indeed less commercialized than Sula, making it great for people who want to avoid a lot of crowd.Wines Available: Sauvignon blanc, chenin blanc, rosé, shiraz, cabernet sauvignonTimings: 12 PM - 10 PM {Sunday to Monday}Price: INR 150-250 for tour and tasting session

Nashik is truly the hub of vineyards but what sets apart the York Winery is the amazing location. Their tasting room is set right opposite a lake and nothing is more relaxing than chilling with a view of a tranquil lake. And what’s more, this is all super affordable, a vineyard tour and a wine tasting of 5 wine cost just Rs.150 per person! Quite a welcome ‘happy hour’ in the midst of nature you might say.
We did the vineyard tour in York. We were the only ones and Yameen(York manager)explained us in detail about the wine making process. He patiently responded to all the queries of my mechanical engineer husband and did not mind when he poked his nose to get the inside view of the machines. After my husband mentally noted all the flaws and the improvements he could think of, we headed for the wine tasting. I am no expert in wine, but both of us ended up liking their red wine more than their white wine. After the wine tasting, I felt a little dizzy and my husband suggested we should eat. The cellar door restaurant has an excellent view of the hills ,the lake and the vineyards .With not many people around we wined and dined in peace.A note-Uber has its range only till Sula(York is further ahead).However you can book and pay extra for them to come and pick you up from York.
