Off the Beaten Track: GranMonte Vineyard and Winery in Khao Yai, Thailand

GranMonte Vineyards

While I am working on more detailed posts about my visit to GranMonte winery in Thailand last August, why don’t you go and check out a small appetizer I just got published on Palate Press about it yesterday. There will be more about the winery on this blog, but this should give you a first idea.

  1. Interesting. I can’t recall a single local wine when I was in Thailand just three years ago and I do enjoy pairing wine with Thai food (did so on Sunday night in fact). This would have been fun.

    • It really is still a developing industry, and Thailand being much more of a beer and liquor country, it will likely remain so for a while. I hope you get a chance to go one of these days, because it really is beautiful up there.

  2. Congratulations and thanks for introducing me to Palate Press, very cool!

  3. Thanks! Great post :-)

    Way to go, Oliver! Big time congrats on your publication! :-)
    I loved the article, the story (even your image shows how passionate Nikki must be!) and your tasting notes. Thai wine: that’s something worth trying!

    • Thank you so much, Stefano. As I said, I plan on writing in more depth soon…it was quite the trip!

      And we do have one or two bottles from them in the cellar, so come visit! :)

    cool article oliver, and looks like a beautiful place too –

  7. Big pat on the back for getting published! Oh, and that calls for me to have one extra glass of wine (riesling, of course) in your honor this evening!

  8. I think that getting published is an entrepreneurial thing to do!

    (Oh, the diverse connotations that words have. I see you as entrepreneurial and creative, but those words mean quite different things to you than they do to me. No wonder communication is so difficult!)

    • Hahahahaha, yes, that is so wonderfully true. The ever confusing divide between self-perception and others’ perceptions and add different ideas and definitions to the mix….and it gets wonderfully entertaining!!

      Thank you, Tracy, as always and on this one in particular!
