Situated in Nashik, India's largest grape-growing region, Sula Vineyards was set up in 1997 by Rajeev Samant & Kerry Damsky. They pioneered the French grape varieties Sauvignon Blanc and Chenin Blanc which were first released in 2000 to wide acclaim as India's best white wines. Sula now cultivates Shiraz and Zinfandel amongst other international varieties and broadly recognized as India's premium wine producer.

The Viognier grapes come from their hillside vineyards in Dindori with gentle slopes and gravel red soils rich in iron and calcium. Some fruit was culled to allow a handful of grape bunches to remain and reach optimum maturity. The uniform weather at this site is due to the presence of a huge lake which provides a uniform wonderful ripening.

The grapes were manually harvested with sorting in the vineyards, then gently whole cluster pressed and the juice was chilled to about 6C. The clarified juice was then inoculated to allow a slow cool fermentation. Fermentation was carried out in stainless steel tanks lasting for about 25-30 days. The wine settled for another 45 days, after which the tank lots were blended, fined, stabilised and filtered.
