Mumbai , India
Prestige wines Spirits Pvt Ltd, headed by Sumit Sehgal recently added one more jewel to their portfolio with Tedeschi Winery from the Verona Region of Italy. Sabrina Tedeschi, one of the family members of the family managed winery visited India to launch and present her wines to Indian Wine Enthusiasts.
The family name Tedeschi is one of the names rooted in the history of Valpolicella Classico wine. The estates first documents date back to 1630 and the family continues their work of interpretation and exaltation of the territory in the entirely 46 ha of hillside vineyards’ out of a total of 99 hectares they own. Attention to tradition, focus on innovation, knowledge of the territory, sustainable viticulture and vinification of the grapes from single vineyards are the key elements that make up the identity of Tedeschi's estate.
These values have become Tedeschi's style, a mix of strength, elegance and unmistakable character, a true and a typical expression of the territory. Prestige has started with 4 different wines from Tedeschi out of around 10 different wines they produce. The 4 now available in India are as following:
1. Capitel Tenda Soave DOC Classico – Mumbai Price: INR 3,150
2. Tedeschi Valpolicella DOC Superiore – Mumbai: INR 2,995
3. Capitel San Rocco Valpolicella Ripasso DOC Superiore – Mumbai Price: INR 4,750
4. Tedeschi Amarone Della Valpolicella DOCG – Mumbai Price: INR 9,600
These premium wines were launched in Mumbai & Delhi for now with a wine dinner in each city and tastings with sommeliers. In Mumbai the dinner was organised at Saffron, the Indian restaurant at the JW Marriott Juhu with an intention to pair the robust nature these with the Indian food. and in Delhi, the dinner was done more of a traditional way with Italian food from Sorrento at the Shangri-La New Delhi. The wines were very well received and Sabrina was kind enough to carry Amarone 1995 with her which was indeed the showstopper for the evening. ( excerpt from a release)
