A grape farm that is possibly more famous for its backdrop, than the succulent grapes that ripen on the abundant vines. From Prapatsorn Grape Farm you can gaze across the stunning natural landscape of mountains and valleys in every shade of green, until your eyes rest upon the brilliant white of the massive statue of Wat Theppitak’s Luang Po Khao. This surprising contrast is astoundingly calming, peaceful and always, very memorable.
The Prapatsorn Grape Farm boasts its status as one of Thailand’s producers of entirely natural grape juice; grown in idyllic conditions to strict standards that do not permit the addition of sugar or preservatives. Visitors on eco tours, with a passion for nature or simply a love of sumptuous grapes, come to Prapatsorn to observe the beauty of nature at work. Thailand Wine Tours will help plan a holiday around an interest in Thai wines and grape growing or even a single trip to Prapatsorn to witness natural farming methods; flexibility comes as standard on all Thailand Wine Tours itineraries.
Whilst visiting the farm it is worth taking the time to climb the 145 stairs up to the nearby cave, journey through the sugar cane fields, partake in some soothing time at the Chinese meditation centre and marvel at the statues. Don’t forget to look up, to the white Buddha on the hill, 112 metres above you and decide, can you manage the 1,250 steps it will take to reach it!
No chemicals are used at Prapatsorn and the friendly staff are always delighted to share their grape growing methods with visitors. A key feature to the success of farming in this region is the pure underground water that nourishes the soil throughout the year. The grapes grown at Prapatsorn are the source of fine grape juice, wines and candy.
The joy of a tour of Prapatsorn is the very casual approach, you are even encouraged to linger beneath the vines, partake of a picnic and savour the wines. All the produce is available for visitors to purchase so that they can continue to enjoy the fruits of Prapatsorn, long after they leave. Perhaps the best time of year to visit would be between August and February, when the grapes are reaching full maturity and bursting with ripeness and flavour.
