Mountain View Wines is a family owned boutique winery which began with a 25 acre vineyard which they established in Nashik in 1996. This was planted with classic French varietals sourced from California, and they claim to have been to first to introduce these varieties into the Deccan Plateau wine region.
Due to financing difficulties, construction of the winery was delayed until 2004 and their first vintage was the following year. Fermentation takes place in stainless steel tanks with a capacity of 260,000 liters; actual utilisation to date has been averaging about 100,000 liters per annum.
They currently have five wines in their range: Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc, Chenin Blanc (late harvest), Cabernet Sauvignon – Shiraz, and a rose also made from Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz.
