Hua Hin Hills Vineyard & Wine Cellar

[HD video below] When compared to places such as Europe, wine in Thailand is quite expensive, which is just one of many reasons that whisky drinking is as popular as it is. A litre of Black label for example, costs as much as a mediocre bottle of imported wine, and local branded whisky is considerably cheaper again.

In recent years however, a few vineyards have opened in Thailand with a mission, they say, to educate the local population to the benefits of drinking wine. Of course with wine being a luxury produce, there is also considerable profit to be made, and while some of the wine produced in Loei, Khao Yai and Hua Hin is really very good, there is at times surprisingly little price difference between some of the locally produced premium wines and those imported.

These vineyards have now also become tourist attractions, with some offering wine tastings, tours of the production facilities, the vineyards, education about the grapes used and even accommodation in some cases.

In Hua Hin, which is better known for the beach and pineapple production than vineyards, the Hua Hin Hills Vineyard & Wine Cellar is an increasingly popular stop for tourists who would like to experience Thai wine for themselves. While the food and wine tasting is a rather simple affair, with little education in terms of nose, glasses, grapes and vintage, it is still a fun day out and definitely worthwhile if you are tired of the beach and want to see a little more of Hua Hin, and the rolling hills between the coast and Burma.

On 22 August 2010, ASIA Travel Tips.com had the opportunity to speak with Hanna Oberauer who is the Wine & Vineyard Project Advisor at the Hua Hin Hills Vineyard & Wine Cellar. Listen to what she has to say about what visitors can expect, how they can get there, some of the costs involved, what types of wine they produce and the best times to visit.
