With Each Bottle of Kādu Sold, Sula Contributes to Tiger Conservation in Karnataka
KĀDU (pronounced Kaa-du) is the first premium wine offering from the Karnataka vineyards of Sula Vineyards, India’s leading wine producer.
Kādu, meaning “wild” in Kannada, is India’s first “Wine for a Cause”. The beautiful label, handiwork of renowned label designer Simon Frouws, depicts a tiger in all its glory in the wild jungle.
Karnataka is home to the most wild tigers on the planet in its many reserves. But the majestic beast - India’s national animal - is endangered, with its habitat under threat.
Sula has decided to take up the cause of the magnificent tiger with Kādu, India’s first “wine for a cause”. With each bottle of Kādu sold, Sula will contribute to tiger conservation within Karnataka. To ensure the optimum end-use of the funds contributed, Sula is collaborating with Mud on Boots, the pioneering initiative by the Sanctuary foundation.
Bittu Sahgal, legendary conservationist, founder of Sanctuary and Sula founder, CEO Rajeev Samant launched Kādu in Bengaluru on 6th November 2017.
Kādu is Sula’s homage to Karnataka as one of India’s most important wine regions.Kādu is the fruit of Sula’s efforts to bring the best from Karnataka’s terroir to your glass.
Four delicious Kādu wines will be available initially:
Ø Kādu Chenin Blanc – is delicious, slightly sweet, floral and fruity
Ø Kādu Sauvignon Blanc – has delicate aromas and flavours of passion fruit, cut grass and green peppers
Ø Kādu Shiraz Rose – is light, fruity and full of luscious berry flavours
Ø Kādu Cabernet Shiraz – is lush, medium bodied and peppery with subtle oak
Winemaker Gorakh Gaikwad has crafted Kādu from the choicest premium Karnataka wine grapes to produce this wonderful “Wine for a cause”!
