Monsoon Valley Vineyard

Winery Star

Wine Leaders' Choice

Hua Hin, Thailand

AWARDED FOR:

Monsoon Valley was founded in 2001 by Chalerm Yoovidhya, a wine-loving entrepreneur with a vision to create a Thai wine culture. Upon returning from his studies abroad, Chalerm saw potential in growing grapes in his beloved native Thailand and set out to show the world that great wines can be crafted even at the 13th latitude of the northern hemisphere.

The ideal spot was in Baan Khork Chang, a pristine valley 35km away from sunny Hua Hin beach. The site was built on a former elephant corral, a sublime place where wild Asian elephants were once domesticated . This is where their flagship vineyard, Monsoon Valley Vineyard, is located today. Varietals such as Colombard and Chenin Blanc, Sangiovese, Rondo and Shiraz were found to thrive here. Added later were Muscat, Dornfelder, Merlot, Cabernet Sauvignon and Sauvignon Blanc varietals.

Being close to the sea gives their Hua Hin vineyards an advantage as nights tend to be cooler with fresh breeze coming from the hills, whilst the sandy and loamy soil is enriched with shells and fossils giving minerality and freshness to the wines. The remaining land is home to many indigenous plants and animals that Khun Chalerm is keen to cherish and foster as he believes the balance of nature is key to crafting great and unique wines.With a strong viticulture and winemaking team, he continues to explore and strive for excellence crafting high-quality Thai wines.
