Exploring The History of Wine in India

Wednesday, April 26, 2017

Additional Info

Grape growing and winemaking in India trace back to the Bronze Age, when Persian traders brought the practice to the region. Soon it became common throughout the area to find wine made from grapes or fermented grain beverages. Winemaking was widespread under British rule during the 19th century. However, phylloxera at the beginning of the 20th century, along with government disapproval, nearly wiped out the industry.
