Ravi Jain, Deepak Roy to buy 100-acre vineyard in Nashik


lcoholic beverage sector veterans and entrepreneur duo, Ravi Jain and Deepak Roy, are close to acquiring 100-acre vineyard in Nashik to scale up¬†operations of their two-year-old wine firm Vallee de Vin.¬
Ravi Jain, on a comeback trail after serving three-year no-compete with UB Group chairman Vijay Mallya, plans to foray into hospitality business with a chain of wine bars in Maharashtra, initially. Vallee de Vin, which makes wines under Zampa brand, is in talks with hospitality players for co-branding these wine bars. 

‚ÄúThe acquisition of 100-acre vineyard could happen immediately. We are looking at strategic acquisition of¬†wineries¬†that are underperforming,‚ÄĚ Mr Jain toldET¬†. He said the proposed wine bars will have three formats, and discussions were on with hospitality players for tie ups.¬†

The company, founded in 2006, is planning to scale up storage capacity to one million litre. The 1.5 million-case wine market is growing by 30% every year. Labels from the brand are currently available in Mumbai, Pune, Delhi, Gurgaon and Goa.
