Among those who hadn’t, almost half expressed their interest in attending one if given a chance indicating a latent opportunity for wine and dine tourism within India as well as promoting such international fests and tours for the outbound traveller”.
The 2012 survey indicates the there’s a sizeable number of passionate tippling travellers touring the world for famous wineries and breweries.
