Sula Fest 2015- Things you need to know (If you don’t already)

Sula Fest is back, bigger and better. The eagerly awaited Gourmet World Music Festival.

With 2 days left for it to go, here is everything you need to know about the fest. For everyone who is planning it last minute, planned it due to peer pressure but have no clue what it is all about, or are obssessed enough to read about it on every online space possible. This is for you.

For all the  music lovers, the headlining act for this year is Young The Giant (who opened for Kings of Leon’s worldwide summer tour), led by front man Sameer Gadhia from California, USA. Gentleman’s Dub Club, Will and the People, Yes Sir Boss, Monkey Brothers, Peter Schumann, Lucky Ali, Nucleya, Swarathma, Sandunes, Nucleya  & many more, are to look forward to.
But that is not it. You ought to know what more is in store, before you brush it off as just another Music Festival. Sula is ready for Foodies, Fashionistas and wanderers as well! And here is why attendance is expected from all of the above.
Since food is Bombay Foodies’ main area of concern whereever we go, we are excited about the tastings at SulaFest. For all you wine enthusiasts, Sula has organized two tastings this year – one with the Chief Winemaker Ajoy Shaw & Sommelier Sovna Puri whereas the other is with Nick Pringle, Director of Sales, Hardys (Accolade UK). Hardys is a part of the Sula Selections portfolio which is the import-arm of Sula Vineyards.
People have a perception that burgers go well with beers. However, this SulaFest, get ready to try different burgers that go fabulously well with Sula wines. Here’s a quick guide to different wines that go well with burger meats
– Which wine goes well with a beef burger with cheese and why? 

Rasa Shiraz would work really well with a beef burger – the juicy meat pairs very well with this complex, aged red wine which is full bodied. Beef is a heavy meat & needs a robust wine that will stand up to it.

– Which wine goes well with a chicken burger and why? 

India’s first & only Riesling by Sula would complement a chicken burger well. Chicken is relatively a lighter meat so can be paired with a lighter wine. Also, the Riesling would be nice & refreshing with the mayonnaise & salad leaves.

– Which wine goes well with a lamb burger and why? 

Dindori Reserve Shiraz which pairs wonderfully with lamb dishes, can be paired with a lamb burger as well. A multifaceted wine, which would help accentuate the flavour of the burger due to its balance and smoothness.

Our other food options include:

  • Woodside Inn – 
    Tuck into delicious burgers like the Chicken Teriyaki, Beef, Piri Piri Chicken and more
  • Cafe Zoe – he menu at Cafe Zoe includes Mini Lamb Sliders, Watermelon & Feta Salad, Mini Veggie Sliders and  more
  • Busago – 
    Relish delicious Khow suey, Banh Mi and more from Busago
  • Other restaurants that will be showcasing their dishes at SulaFest are MM Maroosh, Puffs & Rolls, Good Juicery, Urban Spice, 11 East Street Cafe, Burger Barn, Makaloo, Albion, Roadside Wraps, Shri Palace, Cafe Bliss and Viju Dabeli
  • Soleil by La Plage –  
    We are most excited to go eat at the outpost of the famous La Plage in North Goa  which is now at Sula Vineyards. Soleil’s unique menu includes classic French dishes including the most popular ones from La Plage, along-with Chef Morgan’s take on classics of Indian cuisine. 

Why are we should be excited about Soleil by La Plage?

#farmtofork– A defining feature of the menu is the extensive use of the farm’s own organic produce with ingredients like asparagus, goat’s cheese, free range chicken and much more. Soleil by La Plage thus presents for the first time, a true “farm to fork” dining experience in India.
