The Konkan version of ‘Palace on Wheels’ is all set to embark its journey from Mumbai to Goa. Soon, you can travel in the lap of luxury, on this route experiencing the ultimate way to travel in style. However, an added feature on this train journey, is a special Wine Tour, for the ultimate luxury experience.
While, the luxurious train Deccan Odyssey covers various destinations in Maharastra and Karnataka, this is the first exclusive train dedicated to Mumbai to Goa. India may not yet be a big destination for wine tours, but wineries in the Nasik region of Maharashtra are certainly becoming popular for weekend breaks, between December and March every year. While about half of India’s wineries are located near Nasik, other regions with smaller wineries include Baramati and Sangli. In a bid to put Maharashtra on the world wine map, AIWPA and MTDC are gearing up to promote the Sahyadri Valley region as a wine tourism hub, using Napa Valley and the likes as models.
You’ll be astounded by endless views of gorgeous rolling vineyards on your ride.
