Wine Park brings new wines
There have been new introductions in international wines available in India courtesy importer and distributor Wine Park. Vishal Kadakia’s, proprietor of Wine Park, philosophy always has been to look for boutique and terroir driven wines. This further reflects with the 2 new wines he has added to his portfolio – a Chablis and a Spanish Tempranillo.
Apart from being available at select retail outlets and restaurants, you can purchase them from Wine Park’s own online store – Wine Kart.

From the French region of Burgundy this 100% Chardonnay wine from Chablis is the starting range of Domaine Christian Moreau Pere & Fils. The winery is more than 200 years and the wines are made in a biodynamic process. Kadakia believes, “Indians are moving to more value driven wines rather than expensive wines, and this wine fits the bill.”
