Given its tropical climate, Thailand isn’t an ideal destination for viticulture. But for the last three decades, a handful of ambitious winemakers has planted vineyards in some of the Kingdom’s high-altitude and coastal regions, where the cool mountain air and sea breeze create the long ripening season that wine grapes need, giving birth to a fledgling wine industry that seems to get better every year.
Wine enthusiasts staying at V Villas Hua Hin by MGallery can experience this pioneering business first-hand with the resort’s new Vineyard Safari Tour, which takes guests on a guided tour of the Monsoon Valley Vineyards, which overlook the green expanse of Kuiburi National Park. After, guests can enjoy a selection of wines paired with Thai-inspired small dishes, then spend the afternoon exploring the area on foot or mountain bike. Back at V Villas Hua Hin, guests will be treated to a candle-lit dinner complete with wine pairings from Monsoon Valley in the comfort of their villa, one of just 28 at this exclusive retreat.
