While not traditionally associated with winemaking, Thailand has been experimenting with grape cultivation and wine production in recent years. Let's explore the emerging wine scene in Thailand.

The tropical climate of Thailand presents a contrast to the temperate climates of classic wine regions, making grape cultivation more challenging. Despite this, certain regions in Thailand, particularly in the north, have shown potential for grape growing and winemaking.

Winemaking History & Terroir

Thailand's entry into winemaking dates back to the late 20th century, with pioneers experimenting with various grape varieties to find those suited to the local climate. The terroir in certain parts of Thailand, such as the Khao Yai region, has shown promise for grape cultivation. The elevation and cooler temperatures in these areas provide more favorable conditions for vineyards.

Common Grape Varietals & Wine Styles

Thailand cultivates a mix of grape varieties, both traditional and international, to see which thrive in the local conditions. Very much in an experimental stage, there are various varietals of French & Spanish origin that are being explored in Thailand

Chenin Blanc

Known for its adaptability, Chenin Blanc is one of the grape varieties experimented with in Thailand, particularly for white wine production


The Shiraz grape has been planted in some Thai vineyards, and winemakers are exploring its potential for producing red wines.

Major Winemaking Regions

Khao Yai

Located in the northeastern part of the country, is considered one of the most promising wine regions in Thailand. The higher elevation and cooler climate of Khao Yai provide suitable conditions for grape cultivation, especially that of the Asoke Valley

Hua Hin

Monsoon Valley wines, produced at Hua Hin Hills, include a variety of grape varieties such as Chenin Blanc, Colombard, Shiraz, and Sangiovese.

In Conclusion

While still developing and evolving, Thailand's wine industry showcases a spirit of experimentation and determination. The unique terroir and challenges presented by the tropical climate create an environment for winemakers to explore new possibilities and carve out a niche in the global wine market. The industry's growth reflects Thailand's commitment to diversifying its agricultural landscape and contributing to the world of wine in its own distinct way. For wine enthusiasts, exploring Thai wines offers a taste of the country's evolving winemaking journey
