Our vineyards spread over 300 acres on the foothills of the Nandi Hills and are nestled at 920 meters above the sea level.
The landscape is made of gentle rolling hills with good sun exposition. Our vines are grown on a lime rich and gravelly soil. It is a well drained soil where rain water flows rapidly without much absorption. The natural protection of the Nandi Hills against the monsoon also enables our grapes to reach perfect maturity.
Sunny days, cool nights and moderate rain strike a perfect balance for cultivation of grapes. A healthy maturation period of 180 days, from pruning to harvest, is allowed for Cabernet Sauvignon grape.
Temperatures vary from 23°-29° C in summers and 11°-21° C in winters
Growing season, the longest in India. Thanks to the natural protection of Nandi Hills against monsoon, our grapes to reach perfect maturity
