When you think ‘wine tour’, don’t mistake a wine tour of Thailand for anything like you have encountered elsewhere. From journeying with the vines on floating vineyards, to surveying the crop from atop an elephant, a ‘wine tour’ in Thailand will be an entirely unique experience for you.
“You may think it is a bit of a novelty, wine from Thailand – but prepare to be pleasantly surprised. Given the climate in Thailand you would assume it was not conducive to vine growing. It is because of the climate that they actually get 2 harvests a year from the vines. Some of the grape varieties of Thailand are well known – like Colombard and Shiraz, some less well known – like Pokdum and Malaga. The grapes come from a number of vineyards, including the Hua Hin Hills estate which used to be an elephant corral and the Pak Chong estate.”
