Sula Vineyard Nashik History
Sula Vineyards was founded by Mr Rajeev Samant in 1998. Samant studied engineering at Stanford University and worked at Oracle in San Francisco. After quitting his job, Samant established Sula after his return to India. He initially experimented with crops such as mangoes, roses, teakwood, and table grapes before realising that Nashik’s climate and temperature were well-suited for growing wine grapes. In consultation with Kerry Damskey, a Californian winemaker, Samant set up the first winery in the Nashik region of India.
Sula was named after Samant’s mother – ‘Sulabha’. Samant steadily expanded the company over the next few years by introducing newer grape varieties and expanding the company’s offerings. Today, the Nashik region is known as the ‘Wine Capital of India’ and is home to almost 50 wineries.
Tasting and Tours are conducted throughout the year. The harvest and crush season runs from January to March and the Grape Stomping activity is conducted in these months.
Sula exports to 26 countries and is listed with Marks & Spencers, an international UK-based retail brand.
During the recession in India between 2008-2009, the Indian wine industry was heavily impacted because of large quantities of unsold and delayed payments wines. This not only affected the wine companies but also local farmers who supplied grapes. So the founder decided to reduce the grape stomping and introduced affordable wines at lower prices which eventually to evolve their business model and to reach larger market segments.
