We set up Wine plants based on Indian fruits like Kokam, Jamun and Jack Fruits.
Introduction: Fresh and crisp and high on aroma, Kiwi Wine is produced in Arunachal Pradesh. India's largest producer of the kiwi fruit, the northeastern state found itself in a dilemma as to how to make the best use of it. It was then the idea of making wine out of the fruit dawned on the authorities of the land of the dawn-lit mountains.
There was a problem in marketing the hugely abundant produce, which led to making wine out of it. Arun Kiwi is India's first kiwi wine brand. The wine is a huge hit in Maharashtra. After Arun Kiwi was launched, the Arunachal Pradesh government decided that wineries should be set up in the state to generate employment and entrepreneurship among youth.
With 1,500 metres above sea level being the ideal altitude to grow the kiwi, a hectare of land can produce six to nine tonnes of the fruit annually.
Kiwi is anti-oxidant, is rich in vitamin C and has a lot of minerals. Kiwi is a perennial fruit and grows throughout the year. Harvesting is done around October-November.
