5 Best Vineyards & Wineries in Thailand

Thailand's Best Wine Labels

    The best vineyards and wineries in Thailand will surely please wine lovers from around the world. Even though wine is not historically a part of Thai culture, the kingdom has been a pioneer in the production of grapes for wine-making in a tropical climate, since the early ‘90s. Wines of Thailand have been labeled ‘new latitude’ wines. The main regions of Thailand that have become home to vineyards and wineries are in the more mountainous areas – in Phichit Province and around Khao Yai.

    The quality of Thai wines has significantly improved in recent years. Many vineyards and wineries in Thailand hired specialists and technicians from the most famous wine-producing countries. Thailand now offers some more-than-decent labels for both white and red wines. As wine culture is growing in the country, so is a new type of tourism with some vineyards and wineries of Thailand offering visits and accommodations to let you discover their products in comfort.
