Mumbai’s famous seafood eatery, Soul Curry has recently found a new spot in Nasik. Head to Soma Vine Village for an ideal weekend getaway. By Japleen Kaur
Nasik is a small vineyard town, a quick drive away from Mumbai, and is famous with all the wine lovers. Soma Vine Village is a resort with impeccable hospitality, gorgeous sunsets by the pool, and a varied range of rooms. What caught our attention were the independent 3/7 bedroom bungalows for larger groups with private pools.
The wine tasting is of course the highlight with six types of yummy wines available at your disposal. From learning where the fruit comes from to seeing it ferment, and then heading to taste it along with different kinds of cheese is quite a treat. Our favourite? The dessert rose! Sweet on the palate, ideal for Indian taste buds.
And when you pair this with the delicious food that Soul Curry has to offer, you will be in for a treat! Situated right above the tasting room, the view of the outside seating space opens up to the endless vineyards and the Sahayadris beyond. Sunsets here are nothing short of magic.
This luxury restaurant offers some delicious Malwani cuisine, and we had our tummy’s full by the end of the night. We loved the prawn lasooni and fish curry. Also, the Maharashtiran assorted platter was a true delight! It had miniature versions of famous treats from the state like – kombi wade, wada pav, sabudana wada and more. However, the cheese-filled chicken tikkas was the winner.
After all the munching, you can head for a relaxing spa session at Nilaya. We highly recommend it!
