indian wine purchases in delhi

it is on recommendations from the ''delhi wine club'' website that we went to an apparently brand new shop to buy a few of the best examples of indian wines. 

the dsiidc wine shop in greater kailash II run by the government agency of the same name had a friendly knowledgeable staff and their selection actually quite varied, not only for indian wine but also for international origins.  it seems that here in delhi, the purchase of alchool is rather highly regulated and wines can only be purchased in official locations and apparently a new larger shop near connaught place will open soon.








we bought a red (la reserve - a blend of cabernet & merlot) and a white (sauvignon blanc) from grover vineyards and a red (shiraz) from sula vineyards. i will be looking forward to taste those together in the next couple of weeks with pierre legrandois, the very sympathique sommelier at mandarin oriental hotel in hong kong.
