I would like to share with you my last wine discovery and experience. During my stay in Thailand I had the opportunity to taste and enjoy Thai wines.
I am planning to write some posts about my journey by one wineyard close to Hua Hin in the south west of Bangkok : Monsoonvalley which is part of the Siam Winery group.
For this post, I'll concentrate on giving general info about the wine industry in Thailand as well as a focus on Siam Winery highlighting some insights that could be useful business cases for other wine makers in the world.
To start with, here below are general information about wines in Thailand :
- Total production in Thailand is 1.1 million bottles/ year and 1/3 of it is exported. (2008)
- The wine industry in Thailand was valued at 400 million baht ($10.25 million) in 2000
- The Market for Wine in Thailand Grew at an Annual Rate of 6.5%.
- Leading manufacturer of Thailand’s wine industry is the Siam Winery.
Wines tasted : I would like to thanks Nichcha for her explanations during the tasting.
