Do you know what is worst than not getting a holiday? Wasting a holiday. This happens when we get a holiday right in the middle of the week. We are often so confused about what to do with that one day of freedom that we end up wasting it.
In this article, we will explain to you exactly why you must go visit a vineyard if you are on daybreak! India’s wine-producing states are Maharashtra, Karnataka(Bengaluru area) and Telangana(Hyderabad), so if you live around these areas, your holiday is in for an amazing experience! Let us tell you exactly what you do in Vineyards and why it is so much fun!
Your tour will start with a vineyard visit. Here they will take you around the entire vineyard where they have grown all the grapes that you consume as wine. You will see the different types of grapes, which are soon to be for making wine!

This is a process where the owners of the vineyard will guide you while you have to carefully pick the ripened grapes and transfer them for the stomping session. If you wish to be involved in grape picking, make sure you visit the vineyards in the months of August to late October.

This activity is ten times more exciting than it sounds, now you can imagine how much fun it is going to be! What they make you do is stand inside a huge tumbler full of ripened grapes. All you have to do is hop on it to remove all the juice. This method of grape stomping was used in traditional winemaking. Sounds exciting to some gross to many? Well, it is sanitary because grapes have acid, sugar and alcohol in them, a combination of which makes it impossible for the human pathogen to survive.
