"Wine is meant to be enjoyed with great food, great friends, family - at the end of a long day it helps you unwind," Singh, a corporate executive, said. For many youngsters like Singh, wine is fast turning into their drink of preference over whisky or rum.
"I used to drink whisky earlier - but not any more. Wine is my drink now - I guess that's also because I go for business luncheons and dinners, where others around me drink wine," Singh said. The youthward movement of the Indian wine market is evident, say experts.Text: IANS
