The story of

York Estate

Our Nashik Estate is a picturesque 9 acres expanse with a hill on the southern side and a lake in the north. The natural slope of the terrain allows good drainage of water in the soil contributing to the quality of the fruit from our estate vineyards. Located 20mins from the heart of Nashik City, our state-of- the-art winery presents a breath-taking view of the tranquil expanse of the Gangapur dam backwaters. This is where our seductive wines with subtle flavours are made.

The most widely planted red and white grape varieties in India are Shiraz & Chenin Blanc respectively. Other than these there are wide plantations of Sauvignon Blanc, Cabernet Sauvignon & Zinfandel. Vineyards of Chardonnay & Tempranillo are small but on the rise as favourable clones of these grapes are being planted across the Nashik region.


We employ modern viticulture practices of growing, pruning, spraying, and management techniques to ensure that the fruit

  harvested is of the best quality. Apart from our estate vineyards, we work closely with contracted grape growers that are spread across the Nashik region covering a total area of 80 acres. The characteristic flavour profile of our wines is a product of the different microclimates and soils of our vineyards of Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Zinfandel, Chenin Blanc & Sauvignon Blanc that are scattered across the Nashik region. The unique blend of the fruit of these vineyards along with our winemaking practices makes our wines distinct in the Nashik Valley.


 Our winery is designed on multiple levels where the various production areas of grape receival, crushing, red winemaking, white winemaking,

barrel cellar, bottling, and storage are located separately in a streamlined fashion. This helps us to transfer wine under gravity wherever possible without the use of pumps. The adverse effect of the vigorous nature of the pumps on the quality of the wines is this avoided. The underground cellars provide perfect temperature and humidity conditions to age our bottled wines, and reserve wines in oak barrels. Our winemaking style is a combination of modern Australia and South African practices with some old world French influence. This open-minded approach along with the best Italian machines and wine storage of up to 1 million litres has helped us consistently produce some of the best wines in the Nashik Valley.
