The journey of Aurva began with a vision to create India’s premium homegrown wine. This wine celebrates the rich terroir of Nashik, Maharashtra. Inspired by the success of CHANDON’s Shiraz sparkling wine, the winemakers saw an opportunity to delve deeper into the region’s potential. They explored its unique soils and climate to craft a new expression of excellence.

With a team of sixteen winemakers from seven different nationalities, spanning Argentina, Brazil, California, Australia, China, and India, CHANDON thrives on the exchange of ideas and savoir-faire. It certainly enriches the winemaking process with diverse perspectives.

At the heart of Aurva lies a commitment to quality and integrity. From carefully selecting locally sourced Shiraz grapes, hand-harvested by CHANDON partner growers in Nashik, to the meticulous ageing process in French oak barrels, every step represents the brand’s unwavering dedication to excellence.
