Award Winning Indian Wines Blind Tasting in BUYAN and SAHA
Buyan Pte Ltd and Taberna Wine Academy are excited to present wines from award winning
Indian wineries, Grover Zampa and Sula, in a series of comparative tastings with
quality wines from the rest of the world.
The Indian Wine World Series will comprise four taste-offs in December and January when some of the best of India will be compared side by side with leading examples from Europe and the New World. The tastings will then be followed by a pairing with innovative Indian dishes at Saha.
