“Best wines are made from the best vineyard”, says Kanwal Grover, founder of Grover Wines and the father of Indian viticulture.
Our skilled team works scrupulously using sustainable practices coupled with selective hand harvesting. Daily attention is given to avoid hazards. Our wines remain appealing yet distinctive in style by applying up-to-date viticulture and winemaking techniques which capture the essence of the fruit from the vineyard.
Michel Rolland is one of the most famous and influential French oenologist in the world. Born into a wine making family, he grew up on the family’s estate Château Le Bon Pasteur in Pomerol (France). After high school, Rolland enrolled at Tour Blanche School of Viticulture and Oenology in Bordeaux with his father’s encouragement. He graduated in 1972.
From his consulting work and media presence, Michel Rolland has influenced many aspects of both the French and global wine industry. What about India? It all started in 1994 after meeting Mr. Grover in France. Since then, he has been helping Grover Zampa to rework their entire vineyard management using more efficient and natural methods, reduce yields to improve fruit quality and concentration of flavours. He also advised modernisation of facilities at the winery. Since then he keeps bringing his expertise to Grover Zampa.
