While champagne bottles have been popped up in various industries to celebrate their recovery from recession, the wine industry in Maharashtra is still enduring the bitter taste of the downturn. The sector is incurring huge losses this year also with poor sales and drop in grape production as millions of litres of wine is waiting for customers.
Wine Society Of India There was a major drop in wine sales last year. In the year 2009, total wine production was 1.30 crore litres. The recession and terrorist attack on Mumbai on November 26, 2008 led to a serious slump in customer demand, which saw two crore liters of wine lying unsold.
India Winery The total value of the unsold wine is more than Rs 150 crore. Due to the slump in, most of the wineries are not ready to crush grapes for the new season. This is a threat for entire wine industry in the state. Maharashtra's total wine production capacity is 3.58 crore litres per year and wine grapes are cultivated in around 8000-acres.

Wine To India Winter is a quiet time for a winery, a chance for winemakers to catch their breath after the frenzy of harvest, get caught up on paperwork, maybe even take a vacation. The transition between vintages has already begun. Last year's wines sleep peacefully in tank or barrel, while vineyard crews begin pruning the dormant vines in the first crucial steps to shape this year's crop.
Wine Society Of India burgeoning deer population. White, who blogs about the 2010 vintage on DonRockwell.com , calls pruning "the most relaxing task I perform . . . my pruners in hand, bundled up in layers of clothing and overalls, looking as round as the Pillsbury Dough Boy and with some hard rock candy in my pocket as a reward at the end of a row. There is no pressure." In a telephone interview, White explained that he began pruning with his youngest vines, those that will have their second or third leaf this year. That's because these will produce little or no crop, so he is not worried about a cold snap. He will begin pruning his older vines -- planted from 1995 to 1997 -- after the middle of February, when there is less danger of severe cold. "Older vines already have their trunks established, so you're only cutting back spur growth," he said.
