History & Geography
The seeds were first sown in the 70s when a young Krishna Prasad first tasted wine that the local bishop imported from the Vatican. He then decided to try his hand at making it, a passion his young wife, Uma, shared with him. Many years later, as they traveled the world tasting wine and visiting wineries, their desire to make world-class wine of their own grew stronger. And so began their search that took them to many places, but none that reflected their pioneering spirit. That was when Krishna Prasad and Uma decided to search beyond the usual wine producing regions in the country. On one such sojourn they came across a tiny vineyard nestled amongst the rocky terrain in Hampi Hills, just 70kms from the World Heritage Site. One look and they fell in love with its rolling hills with spectacular landscape views.
