Situated 180 km northeast of Mumbai, Nashik is India’s largest grape-growing region, but had traditionally never been used to grow wine grapes. The winery and vineyards are open to the public for educational tours, and the beautiful Tasting Room invites visitors to enjoy their favourite Sula wines amidst spectacular views of the vineyards and surrounding lakes and hills.

From the RC - Mahesh Madgavkar

Dear Stallions,
As you all are aware that we are riding to a most awaited and a natures blessed destination.... `Nashik - Sula Vineyards' on 22nd & 23rd Feb, I would be the RC & your host for welcoming you on this wonderfull ride .
The total kms we would be covering would be around 185 kms (one way).
Here is the ride plan :
=> Stallions will assemble at Gokul (VileParle E) at 6.00 am Sharp.
=> Ride will start from Gokul at 6.45 am Sharp.
=> 1st Halt at Padgha Village for breakfast in Hotel Midway Park, approx kms would be 85 kms & expected time to reach would be 8.45 am.
=> We would start our ride by around 10.30 am, we will not halt after that & directly reach Nashik Road (Nashik City), where we are going to stay (in my house).
     Approx kms would be 100 from Hotel Midway & expected time to reach would be 12.45 to 1.00 pm.
=> Officially ride will get over at my place in Nashik Road.
After fresh n up we will have our lunch in Gangapur road which is on the way to Sula Vineyard.
Post lunch around 2.30pm we shall proceed to Sula Vineyard, which is around 15 kms from my residence & 10 kms from the Restaurant.
Winery Tour Details :
I have booked a Winery tour for our group which includes Factory visit & wine testing of 4 premium wines.
Costing for each person (including tasting) is Rs.150/-.Our group would be exclusively attended by the Sula team for this tour.
Post Tour details :
Once we are done with the tour & testing, there is an option to purchase your choice of Wines from there outlet, There are merchandise outlet
which also keeps Tshirts, Key chains, Wine glasses, Wine openers etc...
There is a small amphitheater & green lounge where we can have our group photos & rest for a while.
As a standard parctice & Rule book guidelines RS members donot drink n drive, hence mod's have decided to restrict our selves to do Wine Tasting & then push off to my Residence back by around 4.30pm. Thoes who wish to have wines on there deck will have to decide at the begining & arrange for a auto for visiting Vineyard & come back to my residence on their own cost. All logistics regarding the same would be done bt the indiviual itself. This is a clear instruction that 'No one will ride to Sula if he wishes to have Wines in the Vineyard'. I hope we all are responsible RS riders & we respect our rules & instructions laid in our rule book hence there would not be any arguement or discussions on this decision.
