The name Heritage was very carefully chosen by Mr. P.L.V.Reddy, Founder Chairman who always believed in Traditions. He wanted to maintain the legacy of wine making , he thought making wine is an art that everybody cannot master. Which is why he chose the best from the field, Mr. J.V.M.Mohan Rao and Mr. Moss Benjamin Bittner. Mr. P.L.V.Reddy with the help and guidance of two experts started Heritage Winery, in the year 2004, and from then, there is no looking back. Heritage has become a symbol of Tradition and Legacy.
The Story goes…
Bangalore weather and its fertile soil supports the growth of grapes. Grapes are grown in and around Bangalore for the past 150yrs. Most of the grapes were used to eat, make juice and some for raisins, even then over all it was not a profitable business. Heritage team guided the farmers and encouraged them to grow more grapes. Heritage procures grapes from 800acres of vineyards around Bangalore to make quality wines, grown under the supervision of experts.
With the support of the Karnataka government’s supporting wine policy, Karnataka Wine board, Karnataka Horticulture Department, & farmers, Heritage has directly and indirectly created over 10000 jobs.
