Chateau d’Ori is a wine business established by Ranjit Dhuru, an entrepreneur who made his money as founder of a successful technology company. Inspired by the wines of Bordeaux, Dhuru initially bought 100 acres of wasteland 20km outside Nasik. This was in 2001, and six years later French varietal vines had been planted and its first wines released. An additional 300 acres of land was later acquired and was due to be operational by 2010.
The Chateau d’Ori vineyards are planted with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah, Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc and Chardonnay. It is currently one of the few winemakers in India which uses only grapes grown on its own estate.
They currently produce five red, two white and one rose table wine.
