THE MIND BEHIND GOOD DROP WINES
Ashwin Rodrigues, Founder & Wine Maker
At Good Drop Wine Cellars, we believe that India has tremendous potential to be a quality producer of wines. The world is sitting up and taking note, as more and more serious drops come out of India. We see ourselves as the harbingers of this wine revolution. However, if the base of the industry has to grow, we not only need to make high-end wines, but produce quality and affordable wines that are suitable for the local palate. Good Drop Wine Cellars does exactly that, with a swirl of innovation.
Rio, our wine cooler brand, has taken wine to the masses by making it a fun beverage at a hundred rupees a pop. Our competitively-priced Casablanca is India’s only premium sparkling wine that is made using the Charmat method. It has won the Indian Consumer’s Choice Awards for four consecutive years (2015 – 2018), a testament to us listening to our consumer’s needs. The award-winning Frizzano Sparkling Wine, inspired by Italian bubblies made in the frizzante (gently sparkling) style is also from the house of Casablanca. More recently, we have acquired the ‘Good Earth Wines’ brand as part of our strategy to be a complete wine producer.
“I’m happy that we’re on course to fulfil our vision of seeing India as a top wine drinking and producing country one glass at a time.”
~Towards this philosophy we decided to place our bets on all things bubbly ~
To see India as a top wine
producing and consuming nation.
To take wine to the Indian masses by making wine affordable, approachable and fun.
