About Rasa Vineyards
 
Rasa Vineyards is the manifestation of a dream shared by two brothers. Pinto and Billo Naravane have been wine enthusiasts since "forever." They are avid wine collectors and oenophiles. After working almost two decades in the lucrative Computer Industry to satisfy family expectations, they finally ditched it all. Pinto and Billo took the plunge to go completely native in the wild, cut throat world of wine making.
 
The Naravane brothers formed Rasa Vineyards in 2007 with the goal of producing ultra premium, terroir specific wines.
