Some lucky feature writer got a tour of Thailand and its wine offerings and published her findings in this month’s Wine Enthusiast for all to share. Here’s what she said about Siam Winery:
The tour begins in their cellar, where German winemaker Kathrin Puff offers an in-depth look at the winemaking process complete with barrel samples and a taste of their top-end wines…Ending where the winemaking process begins, the floating vineyards add a uniquely Thai air, though you won’t find any vines literally floating in the canals built to help irrigate the land during monsoon season. Essential items include your camera and a few words of Thai to converse with the viticulturist. Nearby the famous floating markets await to further fill your memory card.
Sounds dandy. You can go ahead and read the rest here. If you’re in Thailand and want to tour the vineyards for yourself, book a tour on their website and tell them we sent you.

Thanks to the newly opened Kin Shop by Top Chef Season 1 winner Harold Dieterle, Monsoon Valley Wines got a nice mention in today’s review of the 2-month old, high-end Thai inspired restaurant in the Village Voice.
From the review:
The wine list is mercifully priced, and the most interesting bottle comes from Thailand: a Monsoon Valley red ($29) blended from Shiraz and the indigenous Pokdum grape. The color is pale and the taste is brittle and slightly sour—and the bouquet will surely change your mind when it comes to matching Thai food and beverages. Spicy food eaters: You can now throw away your whites!
