The Time-Turner Series || UB's Memorable Four Season's Vineyard in rugged Baramati, Maharashtra

  Back in 2014, we were invited to a Food and Wine tasting hospitality event by United Breweries. Wine is one drink I haven't yet been able to figure out. Not that I have figured out every other drink, but with wine I do not know how much will be too much. It depends from wine to wine. Anyway, the event sounded exciting and we had an amazing time at Baramati - a place I hadn't even heard of before this. And that makes it a good candidate for a Time-Turner post.         The Time-Turner series is my opportunity to pen down the lingering memories and impressions of a place I have visited. It helps me relive the experience a bit and also reflect upon the aspects of the place that stood out the most to me. For more Time-Turner posts, follow this link: The Time-Turner Series.       As part of this event, about 8 of us were invited to stay at United Breweries' Four Seasons Vineyard for a night. This was going to be about wine tasting, wine and food pairing, and an overview of the wine-making process. The Vineyard has a few suites for stay and a beautiful vineyard in a very arid part of Maharashtra, which looks like a desert actually with its thorny shrubs and muddy hillocks. I remember our host telling us that one could spot striped hyenas here at times. He even showed us some photographs of the formidable creatures.       The vineyard had hired a chef to cook for us during our stay. With every meal we had there, there was wine pairing with every course. We had one wine with the appetizer, another with the main course, and a dessert wine with the dessert. We had 3 meals here at this property, so you can imagine how much wine we had with food. And then there was the evening on the terrace that was overflowing with wine. And the wine tasting during the tour. So yes, we were pretty drunk throughout our stay here.       But in the midst of all this, we also found time to take a walking tour of the vineyard, and managed to walk in straight lines, above all. We learnt about how to plant grape vines, what kind of conditions are required for the vines to grow and then to fruit. Then at what stage the grapes are harvested. And what all can go wrong in the entire process. Much of that knowledge is forgotten now, but I remember it that it was a fun walk, and the weather was good as well. We didn't see any hyenas though.       While returning from Baramati, we stopped for a bit at Pune, and that part has already been covered in another Time-Turner post. This was our first trip to Pune as well. So a new destination too was ticked. Overall, this stay at Baramati was short and enjoyable. And we met some great people there as well. That was another travel goal ticked. So I would term this a pretty successful stay.

That sure sounds like a very special stay.
The hyenas would have made the trip complete, no? :)
