Thailand is a land of diverse landscapes, stunning natural scenery, breathtaking temples, fascinating history, varied attractions, exciting nightlife and the warmest service in the world. Capturing all this and adding the unique pleasure of wine tasting, will make for a holiday in Thailand that you will not forget.
“Wine tasting is the sensory examination and evaluation of wine. The practice of wine tasting is as ancient as its production, although a more formalised methodology has slowly become established from the 14th century onwards.”
-Wikipedia on ‘Wine Tasting’
When you visit Thailand, you can take the journey through the wine growing regions and the sampling of the wines, as seriously or casually as you like. Our wine tours of Thailand are tailored around your preferences, itinerary and budget so that you get everything you want from the tour.
Wine growers in Thailand face unique challenges due to the location of the country at 15 degrees north of the equator but have had remarkable success in three key regions. Thailand Wine Tours offers you journeys into these three main wine growing regions of Thailand:
-the fertile Chao Phraya delta where the Chao Phraya River enriches the soil during its more than 200 mile journey before flowing into the Gulf of Thailand
-the hilly Khao Yai area with its national park and Asoke Valley, well known for the delicate yellow blossom flower that is special to the region
-the vast Northern Thailand area near the border with Laos, with its majestic mountains, dense forests and green valleys.
Whether you choose to explore one vineyard in one wine growing region of Thailand or a variety, throughout the wine growing areas, you will be surprised and delighted to discover the amazing ‘New Latitude Wines’ that Thailand has to offer.
“…a Monsoon Valley late-harvested Muscat 2008 from the Hua Hin Hills Vineyard. Muscat is the only wine that actually tastes of grapes, and its sweetly seductive grapey, raisiny richness, with a touch of delicate rose petal in its perfume, has for centuries proved irresistible. Fortified to 15 percent volume it is a glorious dessert wine, and a fitting conclusion to this year’s Bangkok Chefs Charity Gala Dinner & Auction.”
