Thailand's climate is tropical and hot, with high humidity and abundant rainfall. Wine production in Thailand is relatively new, with vineyards planted in the northern regions of the country where the climate is cooler. The two main wine regions in Thailand are the Khao Yai and Hua Hin regions, and are gradually gaining recognition for its unique and flavorful wines.
The Khao Yai region is located near a national park and has an elevation of over 300 meters, making it cooler than other parts of Thailand. This region is known for producing full-bodied red wines, particularly Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon. You will also find some cool climate white wines such as Chenin Blanc or Viognier
The Hua Hin region is located near the coast and has a slightly warmer climate. This region is known for producing lighter-bodied wines such as Chenin Blanc, Colombard, and Muscat. Thai winemakers have also experimented with blending local fruits such as passionfruit and lychee with grapes to create unique fruit wines.
