Kinfg zanhagir was alcholic so his servants brought the soi from kashmeer to grow the grapes here. and these serbants made best wine for the king. and also the design in which grape garden is built that is very beautiful and that design is very popular on Indian carpets and can be seen at different store at Agra
It was here that Akbar grew various kinds of grapes for making local wine in the palace. Fiction has it that he even had ice to go with the wine .....and ice was only for emperors, not commoners ! So next time you slip in some ice in your cola, remember you are no less than an emperor.
