Before taking off for its fourth flight from Varanasi (VIBN) in the Republic of India, to Mandalay (VYMD) in the Republic of the Union of Myanmar, the Solar Impulse team will prepare the aircraft and pilot. It will also be the opportunity to reach out to governments, NGOs, universities and schools to spread Bertrand Piccard's and André Borschberg's message about clean technologies.

Solar Impulse will take off for its third flight from Ahmedabad (Sardar Vallabhbhai Patel International Airport, AMD/VAAH) in the Republic of India, to Varanasi (Lal Bahadur Shastri Airport, VNS/VIBN) in the Republic of India. The pilot will fly the zero-fuel airplane on about 1071km (578NM) for an estimated time of 15 hours.

Moët Hennessy


Chandon is one of MoëtHennessy India’s newest ventures. It is the first offering from Estates & Wines to be produced in and especially for the Indian market, reiterating MoëtHennessy Estates & Wines’ commitment in developing local excellence. The vineyard is located in the Nashik region, in landed from the coast with an average altitude of 400 meters.

The grape varieties cultivated are Chenin blanc, Chardonnay and Pinot Noir. Indeed the Chenin blanc is the main variety well suited to the growing conditions found in Nashik. When picked at the right time it offers abundant fruit characters often contributing to front palate fruit weight. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir play an integral part in the blend by fleshing out the mid palate with fruit weight and lengthening the wines impression in the mouth.

The winery is a state of the art green field construction located at the base of a local Massif on the outskirts of the Dindori Village. The winery has been created to focus on every element of wine production from the vines in the field to the visitor center. The design strategy was to capitalize on the environment, connect to culture, conceal the heavy production areas from the visitor area, and consider the construction ability of local contractors.
