About Grover Zampa Vineyards Ltd.
Situated 40 kilometers from city center and on the ouskirts of Bangalore, stretches India’s most exiting wine region: the Nandi Hills. Once known as the summer retreat of Tipu Sultan and then of the British, it has triumphantly risen as a rich wine producing area in recent past. Nandi Hills is a picturesque region dotted with sloping green hillsides and miles of forestland. It is inhabited by incredibly beautiful wild life. In such paradisiacal landscape, stand our vineyards.
Grover Zampa Vineyards Ltd. Reviews
★★★★★ Firstly the entrance fee Rs.1180, bit on steep side but being first time in a winery, I enjoyed the information and the process of manufacturing wine. The tour includes six wine tastings, grape stomping and the vineyard. The place is chill and has some great ambiance near reception. One more thing, 10 pc discount on all wines..😉 Six wines you get to taste ranging from sparkling wine, white wine, Rose wine and Red wine. Grape stomping ends it on a fun note.
★★★★★ Not worth the 1000Rs + tax. There was no lunch, just winery tour and wine tasting of 6 wines. For Vineyard visit, they just informed us a rough location, we drove for a bit, couldn't find it and left the place. It would have been just OK for 500Rs. Grover really needs to be more professional about their tour or just don't do it till the time they make proper arrangements.
★★★★★ This is a place to be if you want to witness the entire wine making process. It will approximately cost you Rs 1100/- per person, which will include wine manufacturing process and tour, bare foot grape stomping and wine tasting for 6 wines. They have 2 tours on weekends, if I remember correctly first tour is at 10:30am and second one is at 1:30pm, though not sure about the exact timings. You will also get 10℅ discount if you buy wine from their store there. A restaurant is also there but it was not opened at the time we visited this place, so can't comment on that. There are some well maintained gardens and outdoor sitting area if you want to relax. If you are a wine person, you can visit it once. Also, you can cover this place, if you planning to go to Nandi Hills on your way back to Bangalore.
★★★★★ Have been here for Valentines day celebration expecting great evening, driving more than 1.5 hours and didn't have good time at all. Food is worst with very less options and for the price they can do it better. They only looked for saving money. Not good arrangements, Will never prefer to go again.
★★★★★ Good vineyard to visit near Bangalore. Not much to do post wine tasting. The vineyards are not in the campus and you need to drive to that place separately.
