However, there has been a tremendous change in the Indian wine industry lately. As of now, the Nashik region in Maharashtra and Karnataka are regarded as hotspots in India. Though, the Indian wine industry is quite young and immature, but it is evolving and thus being recognized in India and the world over. H2: List of Top 10 Red Wine Brands in India
