Team MissMalini's Trip To Sula Vineyards
Team MissMalini’s Trip To Sula Vineyards

At MissMalini.com, we do a whole bunch of fun things! We have days when we go out interviewing our favourite stars, we get chances to get fun makeovers, attend some super cool parties and sometime, we get to do something that tops everything I just mentioned. Team MissMalini went on a road trip, our very first offsite, and we went to the beautiful Sula Vineyards in Nashik. For three days, we did nothing but hang by the pool, throw a party in Malini & Nowshad’s suite, take part in a massive treasure hunt and ok yes, the obsessive bloggers that we all are, we worked a bit too. So all in all, it was the perfect mid-week weekend for Team MM and here’s a bit of what everyone loved the most from the trip.

MissMalini, Founder & Blogger-in-Chief

My favourite part of the Sula trip was taking my whole team out for a “wine-breaker” and discovering that my suite – named after my favourite red wine, “Rasa” – was filled with pink balloons with personalised messages on them! Talk about attention to detail, Rajeev & Cecilia made it all so extra special with this delightful surprise and some delicious Rasa to boot :) xoxo

Nowshad, CEO

My favourite part visiting Beyond at Sula Vineyards was looking out at the spectacular vista from our balcony in the morning. Nothing will get you out of bed faster than that view!

Mike, Director of Sales & Business Development

For me, it was that swimming pool! I took a GoPro in and had some fun underwater. You can watch it tonight on MissMalini’s World on TLC.

P.S. Mike refused to call them grapes, he called them ‘wine berries’!

I usually don’t end up interacting with the bloggers directly, so my favourite part of the trip was definitely the evening party where we just hung out, played board games and even jumped into the freezing pool at midnight! It gave me the opportunity to get to know each member of Team MM a lot better – their likes, dreams and random details about their life – in an informal manner and of course, accompanied with a lot of wine! ;-)

Marv, Head Stylist

I haven’t ridden a cycle for over 10 years and riding one to the Sula Vineyard was one of my top moments!

My favourite part was cycling from Beyond to Sula vineyards during the treasure hunt! Everything was so lush and fresh – the city stress magically disappeared and I felt so free!

Rashmi, Bollywood Kapoor

My favourite part of the Sula trip was the view! There’s nothing quite like the waking up to an incredible view right outside your room – gets the day started off right.

Anushka, Fiery Fashionista

Wine is my favourite drink so this trip was the perfect fit! Also, I’m not exactly a spontaneous person, so jumping into a freezing cold, yet beautiful, pool in the middle of the night was definitely one of the highlights of the trip.

Andrea, Editor

My favourite part of the trip was Rasa! He’s the cutest puppy ever!

Hah, my favourite part of the trip was the party! Because everyone got drunk and happy, everyone spoke to everyone and Swagz got *insert Swagata wink* drunk! (Excuse our inside jokes!)

It’s difficult for me to pick just one moment because I enjoyed each and every bit of it. But playing treasure hunt in the picturesque vineyards of Sula and then winning it made for an unforgettable experience. I can’t believe I got free VIP passes for next year’s Sula fest! All my dreams are coming true ever since I’ve joined MissMalini’s dream team.

All the team games we played during the trip was my favourite part of the entire Sula trip!

While others were double-checking things off their bucket list, I was busy living my favourite part of the trip. I let my hair down to go for a midnight dip in the pool. Yes, my brain cells froze and it felt nothing less than an ice cream headache! Nevertheless, Sula was the best trip ever (: Love Light Sula!
