The newest winery run by the first women wine entrepreneur, with a focus on producing easy-drinking wines.
It all began in 2003 when Ms. Shaambhavi Hingorani set up SDU’s first vineyard at the quaint Nandi Valley region in Karnataka, approximately 73 km from MG road in Bangalore. Her journey started as an agriculturist – growing grapes and selling them to wineries across the country before launching the company’s first vintage in 2012.
