Sign Up For A Day Of Wine Tasting And Fun At These Gorgeous Vineyards Near Bengaluru!

Have you always fancied those trips that people in movies take to the vineyards or have you been drinking wi’ne for a while and want to learn more about it from the source? Well, you can now do both because Bengaluru has quite a few vineyards making excellent wi’nes. While all the tours offer guides who will take you around, explain how the win’es are produced, we’ve talked about how each tour is different. With plenty of their wi’nes for you to smell, swirl, sip and swallow and detailed instructions, the memories will be something you’ll take back home along with bottles of wi’ne.

Heritage Sula Winery

While their main branch remains in Nashik, Sula also has a branch located near Channapattana town, just 60 km from Bengaluru. We like how aesthetic the place is, complete with gardens of yellow flowers, full in bloom and an in-house restaurant serving delicious wi’ne-food pairings. The tour here starts with grape stomping for 45 minutes and even though Sula doesn’t produce win’e this way anymore, the stomping has been included to give the visitor a complete experience. Do shop for their Kadu range which is produced exclusively with grapes from Karnataka.

Big Banyan Vineyard

Located near Bengaluru’s Dodda Alada Mara aka Big Banyan Tree, The Big Banyan Vineyard makes its w’ine tour interesting with 10 cuts of unique cheese paired with six different w’ines. We suggest you stay back for a while after the guided tour ends to explore because sunsets by a vineyard are the best, especially when you are sipping on some delicious wi’ne. They have three packages to choose from one of which offers only the tour without win’e tasting whereas second and third allow you to taste four and six respectively.

Grover Vineyards

Located at the foot of Nandi Hills, the Grover Zampa Vineyards is set against a breathtaking backdrop. With six different wi’nes, Grover Vineyards sweetens the deal with a delicious buffet lunch included in the tour. The staff will gladly organize a grape stomping session and a picnic meal in the vineyard too if there are more than 10 people on the tour. There are two packages to choose from – the first

Soma Vineyards

Perhaps one of the few places (if not the only) where you’ll find coconut plantations along with grape vineyards, Soma Vineyards is set against a backdrop of hills and the drive down the winding dirt roads add to this. The folks here offer wi’ne with a unique barbeque lunch (yum!) and a friend who visited recently mentioned that the owner had curated dishes for a vegan on the group as well.  Each of the three win’es served is paired with the food.

Kinvah Vineyards

The tour of Kinvah Vineyards is more than just tasting w’ines and learning about the production. There is quite a bit of pampering as well with a welcome drink, snacks, followed by a visit to the factory and lunch. You’ll be finishing the tour with a fun grape stomping session as the sun sets on the horizon.

Here’s Where You Can Sip On Mulled Wine And Eggnog In Bengaluru To Channel Christmas Vibes

We appreciate booze round the year and how can we not? We are in THE Pub Capital of India. However, Christmas is especially a time we look forward to the warm, spicy mulled wine and all its wonderful variations that the restaurants in Bengaluru have to offer. That and eggnog of course. However, few places in the city make eggnog, so we’ve gone ahead and listed those too. Go ahead, read, drink and wish you a merry Christmas.



A rather popular haunt for Mexican food and vibrant, lively space by celebrity chef Vikas Seth, we are excited about the delicious Strudel Mulled Wine at this restaurant with flavors of cinnamon, apple, and raisins. They have the Classic Eggnog on the menu too apart from some unique dishes from the Mexican inspired menu.

Smoke House Deli

We can go on endlessly about how much we are fond of everything at Smoke House Deli, be it the consistently great food, delicious fruit-infused cocktails or even its pretty white ambiance. However, this Christmas, we are heading here for the House Fusion Mulled Wine made using their fruit-infused wines, the same used for their other cocktails but more Christmassy from the spices and fruits.



Known especially for large options in cocktails and unique mixes, we aren’t surprised that the joint has a Christmas special Eggnog and Mulled Wine. While they have gone traditional with the two classic drinks, they have whipped up specials like Yuletide, Christmas In Mouth and North Pole.

Uru Brewpark


Uru Brewpark made tremendous news this year for being the only brewery inside a park, an ode to the Garden City we think. That said, head to Uru Brewpark this Christmas for many glasses of warm, fruity Mulled Wine teamed with an elaborate buffet of Indian and continental Christmas themed dishes.



The newest joint in the city offering modern Indian cuisine, Rahi is bringing seasonal Christmas themed vegetarian and non-veg specials to the table along with glasses of soulful Mulled Wine. If you haven’t been to the place yet, there is no better time than Christmas to experience it.

Byg Brewski

Go Byg this Christmas with special Mulled Wine and creamy Eggnog at Byg Brewski which is quite the favourite with the Bangalore crowd for its beautiful ambience and beers. There is also a Christmas brunch complete with Traditional Yule log, Croquembouche, Minced Pie to help you finish the glasses of drinks.

Cafe Felix

We had dropped by Cafe Felix last year for Christmas and kept reminiscing about the delicious Mulled Wine and Boozy Eggnog all year long! We sure are dropping by this year too for more of their special dishes like Classic lamb borscht, Pan Seared Aubergine, and Felix Turkey Roulade.
