Sula-cabernet and Sula-chenin, so will you charge rs. 100000.00 for this
brand or Rs. 300000.00??? for the three verital wines. Pl. clarify???

consider different varietal as a separate label and not as a
separate brand and the decision is not clear to us. Pl. confirm)

as 1000ml, 750ml, 375ml, 180ml, Rs.
5000/- per size or per label.

50,000/- instead of Rs. 10,000/-.
