Grover Zampa is no stranger to awards and it has won several over the years. This year the winery has added yet another to its list after being conferred the ‘Winery of the Year’ by Asian Wine Review. In addition to the award, the winery also earned several gold medals and its “Art Collection Rosé 2017 - Shiraz” was awarded the “Best Rose.”
Founded in 1970s after Kanwal Grover visited several wineries in France, Grover Zampa initially saw a partnership with George Vesselle who once worked at Champagne Mumm Vineyard. Since then, the company has seen its vineyards spread to two states in India, and produces over a million liters of sparkling wine and Shiraz yearly.
Currently the chief winemakers are Mathias Pellissard and Karishma Grover, while Kapil Grover manages Grover Zampa and has expanded the vineyards from 100 acres to more than 400. The winery has benefited from modern techniques and process which have been introduced by Kapil and as a result the quality of wines produced has improved steadily.
The winery’s “Vijay Amritraj Reserve Collection Red 2015” also took the Gold medal in the red wine segment. A blend of Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Viognie, the wine was described as “exotic.” Grover Zampa had previously won an international award for its "Art Collection Sauvignon Blanc 2014" at the Decanter Asia Wine Awards 2014 along with three bronze and three silver medals.
