Fruit Wine Research in India

Shrikant Magar - winemaker
Every once in a while, I meet a person truly passionate about winemaking. That is someone that seems to be talking about wine, making it or drinking in all the time. Someone intimately involved in product development and refining wines of all types. They do it, not because they are getting paid for it (which of course is always a bonus) but because of the love of wine. One of these people is Mr. Shrikant Magar of Nashik, India.

Now, Nashik is known in India as wine HQ. I have been there on several occasions and it is a truly beautiful area which huge winemaking potential. While mostly grapes grow in the region, plenty of quality fruit also does and really nice and interesting fruit grows throughout India. There is a lot of research and development being done in the region and wines from India are increasing in quality very fast.

Shrikant who is involved in the industry has started an ambitious project of refining homemade fruit wine recipes. This will be useful to wine lovers throughout India and elsewhere and show that great wines can also be made with other fruits aside from grapes.

A brief excerpt of the project on making wines from fruits available in India such as pomegranate, papaya, strawberry and sapota is viewable here:

Indian Home Fruit Wine Making

He can also be contacted through me or directly for anyone needing assistance with his or her home made or commercial wine.

I feel that the potential of fruit wines in India to be immense and people like Shrikant will make this happen. This is a guy to keep an eye on, as he will become an important part of the Indian wine industry.

Anyone out there who has an experience to share in regards to fruit wines, let me know! I would love to feature you, your project or experience to fruit wine lovers worldwide.
