Delhi's First Wine Boutique

Brave the dusty hubbub beneath the Savitri flyover, go past the Maruti showroom on your left, and walk into Delhi’s first wine boutique, unescorted. Have an actual conversation with the staff and walk out with one of the 300-plus Chileans, Aussies, Argentines, Californians, or even a French, Italian or Indian vintage — sans stares and catcalls.
