Contest: Win Passes To An Exclusive Wine Tasting Event By Wine Kart



Wine Tasting

Wine lovers rejoice! Here is a contest you are going to love!
Wine Kart, India’s first online wine store for boutique wines is hosting their first exclusive wine tasting and buying event in association with GourmetItUp and you could get a chance to be a part of it!

About Wine Kart
Started by Vishal Kadakia, who hails from a reputed business family and is a zealous wine enthusiast, Wine Kart aims to bring the world’s finest wines to the Indian wine loving populace.

Having lived and worked in Boston, USA for over eight years, Vishal developed a passion for wines and went on to study them. On his return to Mumbai he realised that while wine was growing in popularity in India, the wine consumer has limited information and access to quality wines because of lack of shelf space at wine shops and lack of interest by the wine keepers. “These conditions are considered primitive in the exciting wine world and we wanted to offer a consumer an interactive wine buying space where everyone from a novice to an expert, can learn or research about wine before buying a bottle of his/her choice” says Vishal.

Wine Kart allows consumers to select wines based on grape varietals, style, region and even on the basis of taste making it easier for the consumer to choose a wine that suits his palate. Moreover, not only does the website have detailed wine tasting notes and expert reviews & ratings about each wine in the portfolio, it also houses informational blogs on all things wine which Vishal believes is “ the need of the hour in India if you want to improve wine sales”. Wine Kart also has a helpline where a consumer can call for advice on buying wines and the experienced team at their end can assist customers in selecting the right wines for their palate.

To celebrate the launch of their website, Wine Kart is hosting their first wine tasting and buying event in association with GourmetItUp. You can register for the event here. Or you can participate in our contest and three lucky winners get to attend this exclusive event!
