 GranMonte Wines

GranMonte gains its name from being beside Khao Yai big mountain. Situated in the North East of Thailand, 2 hours from Bangkok, the GranMonte vineyard has firmly established itself as one of leading wine producers in Thailand. Located in the beautiful Asoke Valley, immediately beside the Khao Yai National Park, GranMonte vineyard has a unique microclimate ideal for the production of chenin blanc, tempranillo, cabernet sauvignon and shiraz grapes from the 20 hectare estate. The first grapes were planted in 1999. Production is currently approximately 50,000 bottles, but there are plans in place to rise this to 120,000 bottles in the future, with new wines set to join the list, including a sparkling wine.
