"Learning with fun, though with live production units off during August when we visited, we couldn't witness it. A good weather day could add to a memorable drive from Bangalore to the place in Channapatna. \nTasting different wines and experiencing number of flavours was enjoyed with my friend & dad. We added a tumbler full of Sangria wine to our memories too at a good open ambience. \nI will recommend the tour for a half day good ride from bangalore + an experience of vineyards and local wine production unit. The guide was well educated but my dear friend from Italy always had so many things to add on to our knowledge. In all it was fun and the guide gets 90% from us, rest 10% I would want to keep if Hindi conversations for the guys of North could also be entertained :) "

I’m not a wine connoisseur and had only heard of Grover Zampa vineyards near Nandi Hills. I wanted to do a quick road trip along with friends, and wine tasting seemed like an exciting idea for a road trip. Having never visited a winery before, this excited me.
I tried 7 different types of wine in wine tasting, learned the art of winemaking and rambled through the vineyards. It was a fun and informative trip from Bangalore.

"Awesome Experience... Such a great wine tasting & learning session we had. We were allowed to taste some 5 varieties, with the instructor specifying its history then manufacturing, bottling & ageing processes and also which wine goes with what type of food. We missed the wine tour as some construction work is going on. The scenic beauty of that place, Chhennapatna, really fascinated us. A park with beautiful sculptures is there to click pictures and kill time. The food served there is quite nice and tasty."

"Although the factory is temporarily closed which we knew goin there beforehand, the wine tasting experience was really good. The property is beautiful and the guided tour of how wine is made is excellent. We got the deal at 250 pp and tasted five types is wine along with an excellent informative guide. Would definitely go when the harvest season starts to see how the entire process takes place. "

"It was good and could have been better. The place was under renovation and few things were closed for that reason. They should have made this clear before making the booking. Overall experience was good. "

"It was a great experience. My trip to sula was with my amazing friends who really enjoyed the place with same zest. Brownie (pet dog in sula farm) was one among the most entertaining part. Staff were really polite and helpful, food was awesome and route to sula farm was also very nice. Only missing factor was farm visit and factory visit... which was closed temporarily for maintainance. Wine tasting and mannerisms were great.\n"

"This is a very good one day outing idea for family as well as friends groups. It takes 2 hours from bangalore via nice road.Heritage now taken over by Sula offers a bird's eye view of wine making which is quite a vast subject our guide tells us.The guide is quite informative and quite the charmer with his words.You get to take taste 4 kinds of wine by the end of the session on the package you choose (regular, premium,elite).Thrillopilea offers regular along with the package which can be upgraded on registration with extra cost.The place has amazing food which was quite the delight. We tried lamb chops,fish grill and pasta.All of which was delicious. They also serve wine cocktails.The place is quite nice and quite.One could take a stroll by the wine yard.This place is also quite kid friendly offering trampolines, a small basket ball court and play area.

"Amazing is one word for this trip. It's a great place to visit anytime. It's approximately 70kms from Bangalore and takes about 2 hours to reach. Place was easy to recognize. People are very generous and got plethora of information about wine making process. Person who took us through the process of wine making was seasoned, knew every bit about his job and was humorous as well to ensure people are engaged. Best part was wine tasting. You can either go for wines of Sula which are sold outside of India too or their local brand heritage which is sold typically in Southern part of India. We got to taste five brands of Heritage (chempayne, three types of red wines and sparkle wine). We also went to their wineyards. Although there were no grapes when we went in sep but it was worth taking a round. Take a look at some amazing pictures we took"

It's half day worth spending place and if your expectation bar isn't high it will make you happy. It could be worth spending more if you have kids with your group let them play in lawn with their friendly dog "brownie". They explain all about wine making process and followed by a wine tasting session. Also let's you walk through their grape farm and take photos. Check with them in advance whether it's season or not if you want to make your photo frames splendid with grapes. It is worth than your usual weekend hangout in Bangalore some malls or movies and if you love short rides.

I had been to this beautiful place on 11-02-2017. It was awesome experience.
Starting from entry till the end. started with lunch then followed by wine processing and much awaited vineyard visit.
People are humble and polite. Vine tasting is best part since I have tried for the first time, explained from scratch like how to hold a glass, how to taste wine(important thing).
Food : 4/5

Excellent Saturday spent amongst nature knowing about wine & grapes ending with excellent food. We had already booked via Thrillophilia and we reached the place around 12ish. The place is around 2 hrs drive from Bangalore, depending where once stays in Bangalore & the Traffic ;). Easy to locate via Google maps and also huge sign boards on the Mysore- Blore Highway. Its around 2 kms inside from the main road. Good amount of Parking space and once you enter the gates, its a resort like feeling. Walked upto the reception and showed them the online booking confirmation mail and while we waited for our guide explored the spacious lawns & Lunch area, clicking photographs & playing with the resident dog Brownie. Our guide arrived and he was a sea of knowledge and humour. After introducing himself to the group we move towards the wine factory, and he explained different types of wine making process and in between threw in some general knowledge and lot of humour keeping us interested in the tour. Post this we opted to take a stroll through the vast vine yards. Clicked again a lot of pictures here and then moved for the most interesting part the wine tasting part. The guide joined us again and gave us the information of the very basic of how to hold a wine glass to various types of wine and how wine should be tasted and enjoyed rather than just drinking it like a beverage. They gave us some 6 types of wine out 2 which 5 were red and 1 white wine. Now we know even bitter wine if we drink the right way is more delicious than the sweet wine. After the wine tasting it was time for lunch and we decided to have it there itself as it was quite late in the afternoon already and it was truly a wise decision as the food was just wonderful. We ordered for started Nachos with chicken toppings and for the mains pepper chicken with wheat rotis and also grape shake for drinks. One can also choose from the wide variety of wine also from the menu too, but since i had to drive back didn't want to get a hangover. After lunch we spend some more time on the lawns and then we started back for Bangalore. Indeed it was an unexpected fun filled, wonderful, knowledgeable and refreshing tour and trip. This tour can be enjoyed by all age groups and from all walks of life.

We had some great moments and of course gained some knowledge out of this wine tour. Thanks to the folks who have organized it well. The guide was very accommodating and noble at what she does. First of all, you will get a chance to learn making of wine from the scratch by way of the guide’s explanation about the process . Since it is off season the grape field was dry but still walking through the factory and spotting the live production is a great feel. The best moment of the tour is that when you enter inside the “Tasting Room “. The Gentleman here in this room gonna surprise you with the methods of drinking wine. I never realized that having wine is an art until I meet this Gentleman :-) You have got a chance to taste about 6 types of wines here. If you really wish to feel little high, right behind this room, you have a fabulous restaurant with some decent dishes along with your choice of wines . Oh ! yah, expense is on you because the restaurant is not part of the package ! The last but not least, you have also got a chance to bring out the wine stompers inside you . Overall, it was a great experience and I think it’s worth visiting this place at least once in your Bangalore life !!!

This was my first wine tasting tour and I had not even a single clue that an activity like this can be so exciting. Learnt a lot about different types of wines and how to differentiate them on the basis of their taste. The vineyards are just picture perfect. don't forget to click pictures as the view of the fields is just so beautiful
