Winery In India Winemaker Yaakov Berg has a recycled winery under his land. Hewn out of stone in the days of Jerusalem's Second Holy Temple, it holds an ancient wine press now flanked by oak barrels in which Mr. Berg's best wines are aging. Above ground stands the home vineyard of his Psagot Winery—a player in an unexpected wine reawakening, after a slumber since biblical times, as the Judean Hills become an Israeli wine region to reckon with.
Vineyards In India The 32-year-old Mr. Berg lives with his wife and two sons a few steps from this vineyard in a converted rail freight car, in the Israeli settlement of Psagot on the West Bank. During a visit to his vineyard among the stony hills near Ramallah, a muezzin's call to prayer sounded from a nearby minaret—a stark reminder of the struggle over this land, to which Mr. Berg believes he is rooted through wine.

As you're zipping north up Highway 101 to Geyserville, it's nearly impossible not to see the imposing stone structure that is Trione Vineyards and Winery. The edifice sits off a narrow access road east of the highway, and it's the best marketing tool its owners could hope for.
Wines Of India Originally the Nervo Winery, built in 1908, the Old Stone Building has been renovated into a modern, 20,000-case-capacity facility; the former boiler room is now the tasting room.
Winery In India The Trione family, which quietly opened the tasting room in December 2008, relies on the building as a billboard. There's no flashy advertising, and the wine can be difficult to find outside of the winery.

3 hours ago NEW DELHI — In an elegant New Delhi club, Nivedita Singh indulges in a secret vice that she keeps hidden from her parents -- she sips a glass of medium-bodied red wine.
Wine From India "I dedicate my whole weekends to wine," Singh, 25, said. "It eases my stress and I enjoy having a classy and interesting hobby." Singh says she is proud to be one of a growing number of young Indians who have embraced the etiquette and language of wine, and who are developing an increasingly subtle palate for a spicy Shiraz or a crisp Sancerre.
Wines Of India "Knowing what you drink and how you drink makes all the difference," she told AFP. "My parents, like many of their generation, do not distinguish between wine, beer and hard liquor. I hope they understand some day." Singh lives in a large extended family where drinking alcohol is forbidden but she is among many affluent Indians who see wine-tasting as a badge of sophisticated glamour.

Red Wine In India Gianni Zonin , the enologist patriarch is also acknowledged as having moved towards quality wines by buying new premium wineries which he has been setting up during the last three decades.
Wine From India Sleeping in the comfortable, quiet guest house that night, my thoughts turned to the remote possibility of my retiring some day, taking sanyas (renouncing worldly possessions and turning spiritual) and going to the Himalayas. Principi di Butera estate might be a better, nicer, quieter and a vinuous location with a wide expanse of vines. My most immediate thoughts were however, focused on the remote possibility of a heart attack, in which case I’d hope the good Lord and a couple of glasses of red wine might be my saviour.
