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.
If you have a fear of flying and want to try the Monsoon Valley Wines from Thailand, go to your better Thai restaurants and ask for it!
