    On September 09th 2014, IICA organized a Wine appreciation class for its gastronomy students by the biggest supplier of Indian wines SULA. The class was conducted by Sula sommelier Mr. Mukesh, Assistant Manager, Sula Wines.

    It was a fun, interactive and informative way to start off the week .The Tasting session with expert comments from the Expert Mr. Mukesh of Sula Wines made it all the more worthwhile.


    The study of wine has recently become more popular with people showing interest in wine has increased considerably. Wine culture is finding its takers, especially among the youth. "The availability has also improved because more vineyards in India are producing wines.


    Not surprisingly wine tasting clubs and institutes in the city are on a high which makes it all the more important for chefs to understand wine making ,the  science & its appreciation .Students often find themselves in dilemma between Red or White as they slowly discover the concept of fine dining and wining.


    This session certainly clarified all their doubts and queries on how , what , why and which wine for the purpose suited .

    The EVENT

    The session included the history of Sula wines,

    the process by which different wines are prepared.

    The technique that enhances their flavors,

    Different types of wines were focused upon.

    The session also included the tasting

    Techniques by which a wine can be accurately


    Interpreted and understood.


    The structure of a wine is directly related to where

    The grapes have grown and yet we can adjust our

    Perception of this structure depending of what type

    Of food we eat with it. Many of the interactions of

    Wine and food are genuinely surprising but all will be

    Useful in both personal and professional life.

    Attention was also paid to optimum storage conditions,

    How to identify a faulted wine and 'read' a wine label

    And how to serve wine at its best.


    The session focused on the many elements that influence

    The health and quality of the wine. What makes a wine?

    Unique? The origin, climate, weather, site, altitude, aspect,

    Soil, and vine; all play their part.


    The method of fermentation, temperature control, size of cask, type of oak, whether to fine and filter, what closure to use – cork, screw cap or glass.




    Seeing the explosion of interest in wine our students were definitely high on the knowledge and health benefits they got to learn from the session.


    “We got to taste 3 kinds of different wine and the amount of knowledge the session has provided us with is incredible and appreciated”, said Adnan Ariff, student, IICA.


    Students of IICA look forward to be a part of many such sessions.


    The event was hosted keeping in mind the young students who are not eligible to drink and are below 25 years of age. Only students 25 years and above were allowed to taste.
