We all know that travelling together is a wonderful way to discover the world, ourselves, and each other.
The ELSA Alumni Travel Hub – travELSA – is ready to put together many opportunities for us to come together – old friends and new – and explore different destinations, share memories and create new ones, and of course, leave an ELSA footprint wherever we go!
Every trip will be a different, unique and bespoke experience.
TRAVELSA - Grover Zampa Vineyard BangaloreSummer Wine in Winter Time
A perfect day for a winter outing. Aided by google maps , on point this time , 24 ELSA 's and their families made it to the Grover Zampa Vineyards off Bangalore bright and early on Sunday. The drive through vineyards and mango orchards reminded me of a Bangalore which long term residents would remember with nostalgia.
Our guide , took us through the stages in wine making. We learnt what ballooning grapes mean. We learnt Rosé is not a mix of red and white wines. We learnt how to store bottles, which need to lie down and what needs to , well, just stand up. Then came the 5 S's : See, swirl, sniff, sip and savour. A lot of laughter and bonding over the crisp notes of the white and spicy notes of the red.
The ELSA spirit soared and wafted through the oak barrels.
