After a 7 year long stint with Chateau Indage, PSP came back to Nashik and bought some land on the outskirts of the city. It was on this land he planted varieties of grapes. The 25 acre land proudly boasts of 5 varieties, namely Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc, Shiraz, Cabernet and Zinfandel. In 2006, PSP built a 3bhk villa amidst the vineyards. While working with Sula , he came up with the idea of wine tourism and hence Beyond, a vineyard resort was born. This 32-room property comes with 2 lavish pools and one baby pool, a vino-spa, a restaurant and a gymnasium.
Beyond Vineyard Resort took shape in 2010 and was further leased to Sula until June 2016. The resort of Soma Vine Village has two parallel buildings, comprising of a multi-cuisine Restaurants, Somras Conference Hall & Madeira Private Dining overlooking the vineyards. The winery is located right behind the complex with 20 tanks in varying sizes preserving Soma’s finest wines! In 2014 an additional 7 room villa was built mainly to cater to group and family get-togethers. This villa came with a private pool. The villa has an in-house chef, who cooks delicious home-made food.
The first vintage of Soma wines was presented in January 2014 and features Chenin Blanc in two styles – one,a semi sweet variety and the other a dry variety, as well as a dessert wine made from the late harvest of the same grape. Similarly there are two styles of Sauvignon Blanc – one which is produced according to the oxidative style, which has slightly grassy flavors and the other that follows the reductive style and is slightly fruity, along with a dessert wine made from Sauvignon Blanc. Then there is Zinfandel, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, a Cabernet Sauvignon–Shiraz blend and a Rose from Shiraz.
Adding yet another feather to its cap and lending more muscle to their endeavour, Gargoti Mineral Museum has also been curating “National Design Gallery & Museum” in the heart of the Indian capital of New Delhi which was established in collaboration with the Handicraft & Textile Ministry of The Government of India (PPP association model), and has been running successfully for the past 9 years now. This endeavour sought to magnify and display priceless assets from India’s rich heritage in its national capital, brimming with immense patriotic fervour.
