There is a tour guide assigned to a group of people, explaining the history and journey of Sula till date. The guide will explain in the detail how the wine is made right from the harvesting of grapes to bottling the wine.
In the manufacturing room, there are various machinery used in preparation of wine. As I visited Sula in month of July, manufacturing of wine was closed as was off-season for grapes.
After the tour is complete, you are taken for wine tasting. I had selected 6 wines tasting package, trust me its worth it.
Our tour guided explained us about the 6 wines served, how to drink or hold the glass of wine for the specific wine with their various health benefits.
