Bangalore, June 5th, 2014: Bangalore now hasan exclusive wine library and a centre for wine education for the first time! A brain child of K.S Lokesh, Founder of Madhuloka liquor boutique, Enoteca by Madhuloka promises to offer only the best range of wines for all wine connoisseurs in the city.

Spread across 4000 sqft at MGR Complex Sarjapur, the beautifully done up Enoteca has a semblance to an Irish pub, complete with wooden casks as tables and criss cross hard wood benches and low tables for wine drinkers.

Enoteca will be a space where one will be able to sample wines, learn more about their history, take in a course on wine appreciation and even be a part of wine tastings. All this will be offered by our resident sommelier Vipul THAKUR. Positioned as being a centre for wine education. Enoteca will have year-long events, tastings and food pairings for wine enthusiasts. Courses and tastings will be conducted by the prestigious wine consultants – Wi-Not, from New Delhi.

The place will cater across age groups, defying stereotypes and demographic confinements, in an effort to raise the wine quotient of the city. It would be the first place to show that a bar based around wine can be a great place to meet and that all wine tutorials need not always be boring.


The few salient features that would set the Enoteca apart would be:

  • · Dedicated wine service with a comprehensive well-priced list covering most major grapes, regions, and wine styles.
  • · A trained team including an in-house WSET level III sommelier to advise the guests.
  • · Sommelier-run classes on a regular basis to help create wine awareness and answer wine curiosities, from wine basics, grape types, to wine tasting lessons and food pairing experiential activities.
  • · Certified WSET courses from London.
  • · The Wine Theatre which wouldshowcase wine-centric films and documentaries.
  • · An attached wine shop so that people can take home a wine they may have tasted or particularly enjoyed at the Enoteca
  • · Wine Concierge services for the first time in India.

Says KS Lokesh, Managing Director, Madhuloka Liquor Boutique“Over the years, there has been a refinement in the liquor habits of the people of Bangalore. Being well travelled and with significant exposure to the finer things in life, there is a demand for premium brands. Madhuloka has always had its finger on the pulse of the public and has been able to provide for its needs. With wine now increasingly taking the forefront, the Enoteca will be a perfect addition to the wine landscape of the city.”

Jointly hosting the event was eminent Sommelier Magandeep SINGH. He said, “The concept of a wine library or the Enoteca is such that it allows for a better understanding of wine. Like people, wines too have character, depth and personality. Enoteca by Madhuloka sets out to help people understand wines intimately and at the end of the day, take home a bottle you are comfortable with, much like you would a good friend.”
