THAILAND: VINEYARDS AND RICE FIELDS
The world most beautiful and unusual vineyards
An episode from the series ON THE WINE ROAD
Nothing connects wine to the Thai culture, however habits change. The first estates appeared 30 years ago and were considered an expensive pastime for wealthy personalities. But, through passion and hard work, these pioneers are beginning to reap the fruit of their commitment.
South of Bangkok, in the Chao Phraya delta, we discover floating vineyards which grapes are picked perched on elephants. To the north, in Chang Raï, a domain makes wine with medicinal properties. East of Bangkok, large estates have developed a very promising terroir.
International critics are keeping a watchful eye on these new wines.
