Everyone loves Thai food, but what about the wines? Central Thailand winery is worth exploring
- Three of the best food-friendly wines from GranMonte, a pioneer in the Thai wine industry
The country’s cuisine is popular around the world but mention Thai wine and you will most likely be met with a blank look. Good Thai wine is hard to come by but one producer that has risen to the challenge is GranMonte.
The family-owned winery is located in the Khao Yai National Park, in central Thailand, and its 15-hectare vineyard is planted with syrah, cabernet sauvignon, chenin blanc, viognier, semillon, verdelho, durif and grenache. Winemaker Nikki Lohitnavy, a second-generation family member, graduated from Australia’s University of Adelaide with a degree in oenology, and her winemaking experience has been earned in Bordeaux, the Loire and the Rhône in France, South Africa, Venezuela and Brazil.
Do you know of any places where I can buy Thai wine in Hong Kong?
