Following the launch of Blossom Hill, Guestier, Piat d'Or and Barton recently in India, Diageo has introduced its first domestic wine, Nilaya, last week.

"We are proud to present Nilaya which is a bold, unique and interesting wine meant for a contemporary India," said managing director for Diageo India Asif Adil.

The wine is produced at three wineries in Nashik, Maharashtra Valley and will be available in four varieties, Chenin Blanc, Sauvignon Blanc, Shiraz Rose and Shiraz Cabernet.

Diageo recently tied-up with retail giants Reliance Fresh and Shoprite Hyper to distribute its wines portfolio and is also negotiating a partnership with the Aditya Birla retail venture, More, to sell its wines across the country.

Diageo India also plans to launch its first locally-produced beer to build up its market share in India. "We are studying the market options to manufacture beer in the country," Adil said.
