Yaana Wines from Karnataka

Yaana Wines from Karnataka

The internet media in South India in conjunction with a PR network is abuzz, announcing the arrival of a new winery in Karnataka, Indian Ambience Vineyards Pvt. Ltd. with  a wide range of seven wines under the flagship label ‘Yaana” to be introduced to the South Indian markets followed by Goa and Delhi.

Designed to give wine lovers a ‘refreshing taste of some outstanding creations’ the winery claims to grow the ‘best quality of grape varietals in the company's vineyards’ located at Bidar, a historic town in the northeast of Karnataka where the new wine policy has given a strong impetus to new winery set ups . Spread across 60 acres of land irrigated by river Karanja, a tributary of the main Manjira River, these vineyards reportedly follow organic farming practices to ensure chemical-free, nature fresh grapes.

Long term contracts have been signed with the local farmers giving them an opportunity to earn better returns, according to the report. The entire process from grape selection to maturing has been done under the expert guidance of the French wine maker Antoine Coulomb, a viticulturist and enologist with an extensive experience of wine making in France, U.S.A. and India. (A Google search did not help locate him or the company, at the moment the website seems to be under consuction).

The flagship brand Yaana has seven French varietals and blends- Shiraz- Merlot, Cabernet -Shiraz, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, a Rose, Chenin Blanc and Sauvignon Blanc.

It will be released into the South Indian markets of Karnataka, Andhra Pradesh, Kerala, Tamil Nadu, Pondicherry as also in Goa and Delhi. During the first couple of years, it may be ‘Yaa’ for South but certainly it would be ‘Naa’ for Delhi as time will prove!

Whether the wine will please the palate and make one sing a modified version of the old Bollywood song, Yaana, Yaana, did le gai, onlytime and taste will tell. Bidar is known for filigree handicrafts. Will it get known for crafting outstanding wine creations as the news report suggests? It might be premature but it is heartening to see Karnataka is getting ready to give Maharashtra a run for its money with new wineries coming up almost faster than the Gold Medals for India at the Commonwealth Games..
