We are all mortal until the first kiss and the second glass of wine - Eduardo Galeano
3 Vineyards, Wining, Dining, sounds exciting enough? How about adding cycling to the mix! Transcend to a world where the air smells of sweet grapes & berries. Travel through empty, picturesque, tree lined streets surrounded by scenic wine orchards, while treating yourself to some delicious wine and great food!
Only a couple of hours from Mumbai is Nashik, the wine capital of India. This place is characterized by its scenic roads surrounded by small hillocks, and of course, a series of vineyards. As the weather gets dewy after the monsoon recedes, join Carvan Trips for a ride down the streets of Nasik as we create experiences at vineyards which hold a historical importance in their age-old art of infamous wine making.
Not big on cycling? Our Carvan would be trailing behind us while we cycle down the vineyard stretch. One can also prefer to just participate in vineyard hopping and ditch the cycling. Spend quality time enjoying the vistas of lush greenery surrounded by rolling hills; enjoy exceptional vineyard tours and tastings sessions. Get prepared for fine rejuvenation.
Take a guided vineyard tour, learn titbits about wine and taste the best of the flavour, or maybe go on a discovering journey. Witness the story of these vineyards as we unravel each tale by going personally to every vineyard. At the end of the ride when we finally settle down at a vineyard, soak in what you learnt through the day with that delectable glass of wine in your hand. See you there! Cheers!
