Wines from Khao Yai Wine Region in Thailand

Wines from Khao Yai in Thailand  |  Thailand  |  This evening, walking back to my hotel in Silom Bangkok, I passed by this lovely small boutique wine cellar and I could not resist, I had to try the local Thai wines. The minute I walked in, I immediately click with both the owner and one of their customers, who end up being a top local Wine and Food Writer. To make the story short, I end up getting some local Thai Chenin Blanc wines from the Khao Yai region, which as I write, I am tasting and enjoying. Not to mention I got an open invitation by to visit the wine region anytime I want. Who would think right, Thailand has it own wine region and route.
As I was told a few weeks ago, the best wines to be combined with Thai Food are the Chenin Blancs, which are the premium produce here in the region of Khao Yai. Tonight the people at Silom Cellar Fine & Rare Wines and Spirits, with the help of expert Food and Wine Writer Thawatchai Tappitak chose a nice one for me, which I am tasting right now. Spring 2009 Chenin Blanc for GranMonte Estate in Khao Yai Wine Region. Looking forward to explore the wine region if time permits, busy week ahead. But just wanted to share this alternative option while visiting Thailand. Silom Cellar Fine & Rare Wines and Spirits – 12 Saladaeng Road, Silom, Bangkok. Tel. (662) 233-4584. CM
