Vino Fest at Phoenix Marketcity Kurla #LiveItUp

Last week I got an invite from Phoenix Marketcity Kurla. The subject said it all and I was pretty excited to read what the mail contained. It was a couple invite to the Vino Fest #LiveItUp, one of the largest wine festival in Mumbai from the 31st of January till 2nd of February.

Vino Fest 2014, was the first of its kind to take place in the Eastern Suburbs showcasing a mix of Indian and imported wines from all over the world along with a beautiful mix of cheese, food, shopping options, art and really great music to swing your body for the weekend.
I attended the fest for two days and had a great time savoring on some finest cheese and tasteful wine.
Nine Hills, Grover Zampa Vineyards, Charosa Wineries, Reveilo Wines, Turning Point, along with imported wines like Jacob’s Creek, Ixora Vineyards, Continental Wines had their stalls, offering a taste of some of their finest wines.There were some wonderful tasting red, white , rose and sparkling wines. The collection of cheese from Go Cheese and The Cheese Collective was amazing too. Along with cheese there were other food stalls from Pizza Hut (my saviour!), Mai Tai Lounge, Kebabs on the Grill, etc.

The event was not limited to wine tasting but there were workshops like Drum Circle workshop, Salsa workshop, Sangria making workshop, etc. to make your evenings extra special. Another highlight every evening was  the Grape Stomping session, which I sadly had to miss which allowed the guests to enjoy this fun activity of crushing grapes with their feet.

and if Wine, food and music was not enough there were shopping stalls put up by designers and art display by many other to bring the best of everything to this event making it a beautiful amalgamation of Wine-Art-Food-Music and Fashion!

Overall, I found the Vino Fest 2014 a perfect destination to spend my weekend. It was meant for wine and cheese lovers along with the people who love Music and Art too. What more one can ask for? If you missed it this time, I strongly recommend to go the next time it happens in the city! :)
