Amazing Place. The Tour Guide (Prasanna) was very well informed and had a very good knowledge of Wine Production. We learned a lot and felt like we are students again. Learned about the grapes, different types of wine production, reason what gives wine their character. The wine tasting was awesome too. We ended up purchasing all the wines we tasted. You get a 15% discount on the purchase of Wine. So basically you can recover the trip cost by purchasing wines.

I enjoyed a nice lunch of sauteed prawns in pleasant surroundings with a glass of their, very acceptable, Chenin Blanc, after a brief "wine-tasting". Very nice! I recommend a visit, especially if you are journeying between Bsngalore and the charming city of Mysore!

Day well spent away from busy city life Kadu winery (undertaken by Sula) located near channapatna, offers you with wine tour, explaining different stages of wine production and then offers you tasting different sets of wine. They will teach us how to taste the wine. Dine in restaurant also available where you can avail wines if not taking on a wine tour. Store to buy wines and other souvenirs also available. #grapestomping is one of the traditional methods of preparating wine and they offer it as fun activity for visitors.
