Krishna Reddy is an important figure in the Indian wine story. The owner of 200 ha of vineyards located at Maidanahalli some 120 km north of Bangalore, he provided grapes for Grover Vineyards for some years. Around 2010 he established his own winery which produces wines from Viognier, Cabernet Sauvignon and Shiraz at three quality levels.
A French winemaker is employed to oversee the winery. The operation also hosts accommodation to facilitate wine tourism. Since 2012 the CEO at Blackbuck Winery has been Shobha Reddy, who holds an MBA from Bangalore.
