York Winery is famous for the red wine grapes that are used in the manufacture of their best tasting red wines. To get here, one has to travel to the Gangavarhe Village.

The drive was lovely and fuss-free. We stayed at The Gateway by Taj Nashik which is according to me, the best property in nashik. Its huge and opens to greenery in abundance. You too have options of some budget and mid-class luxury hotels here. Stay at Taj Nashik will be around 6000 bucks per night including your breakfast.After getting refreshed at the hotel, I have rushed for my favourite destination and the reason I have chosen Nashik ie Sula Vineyards. Yes!!!! you have heard it right..I have been craving to be at sula vineyards for long since Sula fest in february happens. It is wonderful that Sula vineyards have grown to be an upper-class classy destination and got the name of India in Wine-Game of the world. You get a decent tour of the vineyards regarding the grapes crushing. wine manufacturing and all the hardwork that the team here at sula undergoes to provide us the best Sula Wines. You have a pretty cafe at the upper deck overlooking the vineyards and trust me you forget soon that you are at India, nothing short of a small village at france or italy. Those who are having love for italian fare can try italian cuisine here at another restaurant inside the vineyards. You also have wine tasting sessions here at a nominal cost but not on dry days so plan your trip accordingly. The richies also having options to rent to villa's (private villa) to stay for few nights and find their own italian villagers life within india within a given package. Above all, I found Nashik a calm and serene city growing all around the sula vineyards mostly and a place where the rich gets to have best of the world because when you talk vineyards, wines you need some paper notes to meet your thirst. Isn't it? But do explore and do a sula session soon.
