Bangalore International Wine Festival from March 11

Three-day Bangalore International Wine Festival will have more than 30 wine companies offering free tasting

If you are game for tasting an array
of exotic wines, Bangalore International Wine Festival awaits you. Plus, you will get to experience fun-filled grape stomping and many more wine-centered events. Buoyed by the overwhelming success of the two-day wine festival held in April last year, the state wine board is all set to organize the second edition of Bangalore International Wine Festival from March 11 at Palace Grounds.

The three-day festival will see more than 30 wine companies offering a free tasting for the common people and wine connoisseurs. This apart, several other programmes at the festival will include wine appreciation seminars and guided tasting sessions, grape stomping, fashion shows, music bands and seminars as well.

In an effort to leverage the grape production and thereby help the agro sector, the government of Karnataka had put forth the progressive wine policy in 2007. This was especially aimed at promoting wine consumption and an effective growth in the agricultural sector through the inclusion of new domestic wineries. To support the cause, Karnataka Wine Board had partly sponsored the first ever wine festival at Lalbagh in 2009. However, the first festival didn’t get a promising success since it only represented Indian wines. Later on, international wine brands were included at the festival in 2010. 

You will just have to shell out only Rs 100 to enter the festival and enjoy a glass of wine besides taking part in other events. The festival will also educate the Bangaloreans about how to carry a low-alcohol lifestyle and consume healthy alcohol.
