Monsoon Pairings

For after all, the best thing one can do when it’s raining is to let it rain
-Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

After days of flirting, the skies are filled with grey clouds moving swiftly as the heavy monsoon air hangs in still. The first drops of the season’s rain are a refreshing joy after the parching heat of the summers. We welcome the rains with open arms as the season of regeneration begins. As the feeling settles in, our kitchens are filled with aromas of monsoon foods and there is a special beauty in pairing them with wines.

We list down some of our select wine and food pairing along with a favorite past time during the rains

Our Chardonnay goes real well with piping hot samosa’s ( or even pakoras / bajji’s). Enjoy this while flipping through your current read while you breathe in the smell of petrichor


Our M/S white which is a blend Chardonnay and Sauvignon Blanc pairs well with Crispy corn chat or bhel puri. Tending to your flower garden, sipping on some delish white and the crunchy corn to munch is the therapy you did not know you need


Rainy days are for pulling out those board games and having a ball time. We recommend our Chenin blanc, which is India’s most awarded wine along with some chicken tikka. Get your partner together and bring out the kid in both of you.

We all have been forced to stay indoors ( and we strongly recommend you do that ) and a lot of us are working from home. But well, WFH has it’s perks too. Crack open a bottle of Cabernet Franc Shiraz with a quick and simple chilly cheese toast to go with. Set up your desk in the balcony with the clattering rain as your music and we assure you of your task list getting smaller a lot faster

They say that the monsoon brings out the romantic in all of us and what better wine than a Rose to accompany this mood. Tandoori fried fish with our SWA gold winning M/S Rose sets the mood perfectly for you to start strumming on those romantic numbers on your guitar

A little me time, a little self love and a celebration for one. Pop open our sparkling wine Noi with a side of bruschetta and catch up with that much deserved break.


Enjoy this season of rejuvenation and growth and do tag us if you try any of this (or your own unique ) combinations
