Oakwood Vineyards in Shrirampur, Maharashtra, is a family owned and run business. Having been Master Blender with a well-known distillery in India, blending has been Uttam Keval’s passion for over 4 decades. His younger son, Amit, studied alcohol technology in Pune, and went on to study oenology and vinification in France. Working with farmers in various parts of Maharashtra, the company put in place protocols for them to follow the organic viticultural practices which have improved the quality of each year’s harvest. In addition, Mathias Pellissard, a French winemaker has been supervising and guiding the winemaking process. Motivated by the success met by the quality of their wines in export markets such as UK and France, Oakwood Wines is set to explore the potential of the Indian market, starting with the state of Maharashtra.
