Vallonné Vineyards is India’s first boutique winery that produces premium French-style wines with varietals and blends that are unique in the Indian wine market. Established in 2009, the vineyard promptly won a reputation for quality and innovation with its very first vintage. The sprawling estate rests on the gentle slopes of the Sahyadri ranges. The scenic location of the vineyard, washed by the tranquil waters of the Mukhne Lake and overlooking the Kavnai peak, makes it an ideal place for vineyard stays and wine tourism.
Vallonné Vineyards is a labour of love and passion for wines. India’s first wine professional-turned vintner, Shailendra Pai, brought his three decade-long experience in the wine industry when he founded the winery in 2009 with the support of close friends, Alan Viegas and Karl Coelho. Vallonné Vineyards is guided by an emphasis on cutting-edge quality, optimal viticultural practices and innovation and is supported by a team of professionals with expertise in varied fields.
Vallonné Vineyards offers a complete and a memorable wine experience, both, to the uninitiated and the wine connoisseur. The carefully crafted wines reflect a fusion of the finest winemaking techniques and state-of-the-art technology that comes from premier industry leaders in France. Beginning with just four varieties in our first vintage, we offer today, a bouquet of 13 labels. Our wines are a result of consistent innovation, experimentation and passion. Our Malbec, Rose, Vin De Passerillage and Anokhee Cabernet Sauvignon are unique offerings in the Indian wine market. The various awards and appreciation we have received on domestic and international platforms are testimony to the passion with which we craft our wines.
Our property houses a boutique vineyard hotel and a lake-facing restaurant that offers inspired South East Asian Cuisine, paired with our delectable wines.
We have consistently won accolades that we have won in the Indian and International media. Sommelier India, Business Today, New York Times and National Geographic have appreciated our wines and confirmed that Vallonne wines are among the best in the country.
