wines

Our wine list has been compiled with great care to match the style of Chef – Patron Manoj Vasaikar’s light and contemporary cuisine.

Our wine list has been created to complement the ingredients and flavours that make up our menu. The list offers an eclectic mix of wines that incorporate producers and regions from all over the world. Some have established a strong reputation while others are what we believe to be the stars of tomorrow.

One of our strongest assets is Sommelier Vincent Gasnier who is a friend and a well-respected professional. He has selected and prepared the majority of the wine list in partnership with Berkmann Wines Cellars. Vincent Gasnier himself is the youngest Master Sommelier on record, an accolade that recognises the most advanced skill, knowledge and wide-ranging expertise in wine.

The Indian wines of Sula Vineyards in Nashik Highlands, above Mumbai, are supplied exclusively by the recently established, Novum Wine Merchants. These award-winning wines are considered some of the best in India. The owner, Rajeev Samant and wine maker Kerry Damskey from California produced the first vintage in 1999 and now supplies many top hotels and restaurants in India.

Our waiters and staff have received in depth training with all our wine suppliers so they are able to match specific wines to our style of food. Please feel free to ask your waiter if you’d like a recommendation.
