For the second year in a row, we travelled to Nashik, around 4 hours outside of Mumbai, for the Sula Fest. This is a 2 day musical festival in the Sula Vineyards. As well as the music, we were able to spend a morning in the town of Nashik itself. We also went to visit a mineral museum - Nashik is one of the highest cities in Maharashtra and lies on the western edge of the Deccan Plateau which is a volcanic formation, and many interesting minerals are found there.
There were all sorts of weird and wonderful things on sale as we wandered around the streets.
We ate at the Sula Vineyards and also did a vineyard tour and sampled some of their new wines.
The Australian Band, The Cat Empire, were my favourite band at the Sula Fest, however all the bands we saw on Saturday were great.
The following day we went to another vineyard (York) which was actually much more picturesque than Sula. We again had a nice tasting, followed by lunch.
