This weekend Get-Away!

25 Jun

I have decided to take off this weekend, and leave this city (even all my love for it cannot keep me)!!! So I did what most excited Mumbaikars would do…..I called my travel agent.

Now, my travel agent is a real Hiro, as is his name. So he told me, “Madam i will phind best deal for you, you just come!” So I did what any Hiro fearing person would do…I went! And true to his word, find me deals he did. Hiro helped me realize that there is more to Maharashtra than just 3 cities(Mumbai, Pune, Nashik)….shocking!

This weekend, you too can live out your fantasies! Take off for a Balinese resort, eco-friendly tree house, an ancient royal fort, a quaint brewery, or sprawling acres of vineyards!!! All within driving distance from Mumbai. Too good to be true? Well then read on!

Sula Vineyards, Nashik

See how the most unadulterated and oldest beverage is made. Taste the various wines made from these fields. One does not need to be into wine to enjoy this different experience as it involves enjoying the surroundings and the vineyards as much as tasting the wine.

Soak up the peaceful view, savour the delicious food, and enjoy the locally-harvested high quality wines, whilst wrapped in the fresh air of pure indulgence.

    Unbelievably useful article. Myself & my friend have been preparing to attempt some investigation about that. We purchased a useful book on that topic by our nearby library and a lot of textbooks were not as descriptive as your content. I’m certainly very thankful to discover this kind of information which I had been searching for a very long time.
