Of course no wine tasting festival is complete without grape stomping and cheese pairings! There will be several grape stomping categories such as couple, group, etc. so everyone gets to experience the feel of making grape juice or wine. The festival offers a collection of the finest artisan and gourmet cheeses made by local dairies in India for tasting and purchase. Gouda, Cheddar, Brie and Emmental are a few among the many that will be available.
