Me and Sameer before the IFBA Awards decided to take some time out and enjoy the beautiful views of Soma Vineyards as we were invited by them. Located along the edge of the backwaters of   Gangapur Dam and surrounded by the magnificent   Sahyadri ranges. They have a very soothing environment that’s best for a mini vacation or just to go out and relax. The vineyards had a picture perfect setting where one could sit and enjoy the view or it could be a perfect location for romantic dinners, special destination wedding or any other occasion.

 

Dining-They also have a dining room located at such a place where we could see the entire vineyard. The founder Mr Pradeep PachPatil told us about the Soma Vineyards and how he aims to maintain the place. The dining areas are divided into 3-4 parts. The Suffiana Restaurant in Soma Vineyards is beautiful in both decor and in taste. It attracts visitors in one glance. The Sensational Vine lounge gives us a perfect view of the Vineyards, offering lip-smacking finger foods. They also have a Seesha Lounge named as Dhuaanimg_20161121_142418
