A geological marriage made in heaven: a new vineyard is born.


Surrounded by gentle hills, endless paddy fields, unspoiled nature and the great Kaveri River, Alpine Wineries nestles between Mysore and Bangalore in the state of Karnataka. The beauty of this magical place is enhanced by the varied and astonishing wildlife that you encounter and which make a stay at the vineyard unforgettable.

The quality of soil is a determining factor in the successful growth of the vines. Soil, subsoil and sedimentation: each component combines here in perfect harmony. A landscape energized since ancient times by the great Kaveri River has developed a red sandy loam soil. Areas closer to the river contain higher clay levels whereas a higher gravel content is prevalent on the slopes.
