Wine and Gastronomy adventures at the Monsoon Valley Winery in Siam
Monsoon Valley is Thailand’s largest vineyard, boasting a diverse collection of over 10 grape varietals. Spanning approximately 300 rai (100 hectares) of plantation area, this picturesque vineyard produces and exports over 300,000 bottles of wine annually. The vineyard offers an exquisite dining experience at The Sala, where delicious cuisine and superb wines are complemented by breathtaking views of the vineyard. Additionally, visitors can enjoy a day of family fun, exploring the vineyard on bike rides, embarking on vineyard tours, and visiting the on-site elephant sanctuary, home to two majestic elephants.
On my arrival I was met by the restaurant manager, Angwara (Apple), who gave me a comprehensive tour of the vineyard, explaining in detail how Monsoon Valley vineyard started and how it has developed into the award winning vineyard it has become in less than 20 years. I would definitely recommend a tour of the vineyard regardless of season,.. as you can learn so much about the history and the operations of the vineyard.
