Wind down with a glassful at Wine Festival

But for three days from March 11, Bangaloreans are expected to revel in the taste of the best wine produced in Karnataka and also choose from varieties from some of the best wine producing countries, at White Petals on the Palace Grounds.

The second edition of the Bangalore International Wine Festival will begin on March 11. The organisers say they have increased the number of festival days to three on public demand.

Finer naunces

“There will be guided wine-testing, seminars, entertainment and great food, besides information to the people about the finer nuances of wine,” said Bangalore Wine Club president Aslam Gafoor.

Also, the festival will open up great opportunities for people keen on trading as exhibitors from across the country. Wine from six continents will be displayed at the exhibition, he added.

Not doing enough

Some of the exhibitors include Naka Wines, Kinvah, Aspiri Spirits and Rico, which was launched recently in Bijapur. Pointing out that wine was good for health, Naka Wines chairman B N Nanjundaiah said the State government was not doing enough to promote wine in the State like Maharashtra does.

“We have decided to screen the live telecast of the India-South Africa World Cup cricket match on March 13 at the festival venue,” the organisers said. Entry fee for participating in the festival is Rs 100.
