Trip to Baramati: Four Seasons Vineyards and Winery

February, the month of romance actually arrived flooded with exciting trips and a lovely vacation. It all started when I packed all my precious accessories and lovely dresses and left for home for my sister’s wedding. Sorry guys, as the title says, this post is not about my sister’s wedding because unfortunately my camera did not capture my full outfit picture

Four Seasons had invited some of the city bloggers to Four Seasons Wines Vineyards in Baramati, Maharashtra. The trip was in the third week of February which was planned exactly in the harvest season to showcase how their wines are made.

It was pretty late when we landed at the Pune airport. There was a car waiting for us which took one and half hours to reach the winery. It was quarter to twelve when we reached there. The villa looked extremely beautiful with twinkling stars and a bright moon to accompany us. Even though we were too tired after the day’s journey, the feeling of being there overcame all our exhaustion. The weather was so romantic and calm. Me, Shayoni and Swarnali went to the pool side, laid down on the benches to enjoy the night sky, the twinkling stars, the bright moon and the reflection of water just above the pool which looked awesome.

Next morning we woke up early at 6:30 to see the sunrise. The sun rose up very neatly but quickly. We could see the sunrise for not more than 20 minutes.
Then we went to the vineyards where I saw the grape trees for the first time. We were given a lecture about the different varieties of grapes and the maturity levels at which the grapes are plucked and used for wine making. We had a short tour around the vineyards.

We had pretty awesome breakfast at the restaurant in the winery.

We then went to the winery to see how exactly the wines are made. The wine making process looked quite tough and tedious. It goes through through numerous processes and procedures. No wonder why wines are so expensive!

Starting from the freshly crushed grapes we drank almost all forms of grapes that were into wine making process. The wines are kept in barrels for storage. We were lucky enough to drink Four Seasons wine directly from the barrel :). Then again there was another session by the General Manager Mr Bala in the conference room where we discussed about Four Seasons wine in details.

A very young chef from Hyatt Bangalore Hitesh Gautam came all the way to serve excellent food for us. The food combinations was prepared in such a way that each time the food was served it complimented the drink.
