Our Story

H o w I t A l l B e g a n

About eighty five years ago Ugar Khurd was a small hamlet in the erstwhile princely state of Sangli in the West of India. It was blessed with two advantages – On its south, there was the perennial river Krishna and on the north was situated a railway station. Conditions were ideal for somebody to harness the two advantages and exploit the fertility of the loamy soil.

The then ruler of Sangli invited the family – to embark on the unexplored venture, which they did with great dexterity, and the slumbering village of Ugar Khurd was transformed into a humming industrial township in a few years.

Today, Ugar is a sugar manufacturing-focused township with large areas under sugarcane cultivation. We also have a research center that works with the government to produce quality seeds.

As part of the agricultural industry, we fully depend on our surrounding, just as it depends on us. That’s why we grow our produce organically and sustainably. Over the past decades the carbon footprint of the winery has been positive, which is something we’re really proud of.
