Vineyard trail-nashik

Hi  friends, Vineyard trail is long awaiting tour in my “things to do” list  which executed in this season. Wine tour is very famous in europe & after “sulafest” it’s gradually popular in india also. Ideal season starts from january & end in march, when grapes crop in full swing. I met two youngster  vinod & rahul, both are engineer, one of them is from IIM,ahmedabad(my city), left their job & started new concept of food trail. They have started promoting local cuisine (farm fresh & organic) paired with wine.

India has vast variety in food, each region has different food depends on their local crop production. But as a indian we have never appreciated this local cuisine & never promoted it properly. On the contrary , we have accepted western local food(like mcdonalds, subway….) & feel proud to eat it, though its frozen food & our indian food is freshly cooked. These two guys have started their venture to promote local food & we really enjoyed a lot.

Now it’s time for pilgrim tour….trimbakeshwar shiv temple

ram kund-@ godavari river aarti

There are different concept in single tour-local khandeshi food, vineyard trail, grapes-strawberry-pomegranate farm exploratory tour, make aware of our children for indian tradition like godavari arti,trimbakeshwar shivling puja etc. At the end of our tour, we enjoyed a lot. I always believe that india has lots of things to offer us, but still not properly marketed yet. Thanks to vinod & rahul (http://wanderingfoodie.in/), who has make our india pride.
