A NEW ‘HOME’ FOR WORLD-CLASS WINES
Traditionally, grapes for wine-making have been grown between the 30th and 50th parallels in both the northern and southern hemispheres.
Thailand has pioneered wine production in a narrow band in the north between the 14th to 18th parallels.
Years of research, testing and development have opened up new frontiers in viticulture resulting in ‘New Latitude Wines’
Premium wines made from grapes grown in the exotic tropical latitude of 14.3 degrees north.
In 1989, Dr. Piya Bhirombhakdi - a visionary entrepreneur with a great appreciation for the finest things in life set about his mission to produce wine with a world-class taste for the people of Thailand.
The first vineyard spread over a total of 20 hectares and was planted with Shiraz for the red wine and Chenin Blanc for the white, featuring French rootstock, and Tempranillo from Spain. With the harvest of 1998, PB Valley Khao Yai Winery celebrated its first milestone. The 1999 vintage proved that quality wine could be successfully produced in Thailand. The first marketing success followed soon after. The vision of Dr. Piya Bhirombhakdi had become a reality.
The winery sits amidst a lush 320-hectare plantation, of which 80 hectares (500 rai) is dedicated to growing grapes. (6.25 ‘rai’ = 1 hectare = 2.47 acre)
Now into its sixteenth year of operation, the winery has become the birthplace of Thailand’s premium wines.
Today, the PB Valley Khao Yai Winery is Thailand’s only fully accredited winemaker.
With its professional, large-scale wine operation featuring state-of-the-art technology, it strives to produce world-class wines for Thais, as well as for export, and is the leading winery in Thailand and Southeast Asia.
