Vijay Amritraj and Grover Zampa Launch Fine Wine in India

18 - sep - 14

Internationally renowned former Indian tennis player Vijay Amritraj recently launched his collection of “amrit” - fine wine (a red and a white) in Bangalore, India in partnership with the country’s leading winery, Grover Zampa.

“People generally say that he doesn’t need an introduction, but thenw when they start, they keep on talking about him for 10 minutes,” said Mr. Kapil Grover about the former tennis player on the special occasion.

The reserve collection by the duo is said to be instigated by the ace tennis player’s legendary feats on the tennis court and exemplary style of play. The two wines are said to be - a barrel fermented and barique aged Viognier (white) and while the other (red) is a signature blend of Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon.

On sync with the launch of new wines, Amritraj said, “It is my pleasure to be associated with a brand like Grover Zampa. As a brand they have an impeccable sense of style, design and product when it comes to wine.”

Also present at the event were Anand Amritraj (Amritraj’s brother), Vivek Jaspal (Amritraj’s doubles partner) and a couple of friends to support him along with the thrid-generation owner of Grover’s Vineyards Karishma Grover, Grover Zampa CEO Sumedh Mandla, investor Ravi Vishwanathan to name a few. 

Amritraj also said, “The wines are such that, many would enjoy drinking. Personally, it is a favorite of his and the varietals have been distinctly and carefully selected to suit at large. It brings in an element of passion and sophistication.”

Earlier in June this year, the collection was first launched in London. Each bottle of wine is said to be offered at Rs. 1100 each (750 ml).
