The Holkar dynasty is most closely associated with Indore in Madhya Praesh, but some descendents made their way to Lasalgaon in Maharashtra where they established vineyards for table grapes in the 1950s. Come the late 1990s and Jagdish Holkar began to replace the Thomson seedless table grapes with wine grape vines imported from Italy and France. Established varietals now include the white varietals Chardonnay, Chenin Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc, Ugni Blanc together with the black varietals Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Shiraz and Zinfandel covering about 50 ha.
Flamingo Wines was established in 2002 to utilise grapes from the Holkar vineyard. The winery is located in the MIDC Vinchur wine park.
