Monsoon Valley Vineyard
Hua Hin Hills Vineyard is home to the award-winning Monsoon Valley label and a range of labels marketed as new latitude wines. Hugged by mountain ranges and endless expanse of greenery, the vineyard offers a delightful excursion, complete with wine-tasting and dining opportunities. Covering an expansive 560 acres of verdant countryside, Hua Hin Hills is tucked away in a remote part of Hua Hin, about 36km from the town centre. It’s best to spend at least half a day at the vineyard. You can combine the trip with a visit to Wat Huay Mongkol and Baan Silapin, both are en-route to Hua Hin Hills.
The main attraction at Hua Hin Hills is of course the vineyard itself, but the exciting part is you can try touring the vineyard on elephant back or bicycle. The paved bicycle trail runs for 3km and caters to leisure cyclists, while the red-marked trail (1km) goes through rougher, steeper terrains and is designed for more seasoned riders. For more creative minds, the paint your own wine label activity gives you a rare opportunity to create a personalised bottle. If you come in a group, a game of petanque, while sipping wine, might be a good idea.
Overlooking sweeping views of the entire vineyard and surrounding valleys, The Sala is a Thai-inspired open-air pavilion housing an exhibit on viticulture and oenology.
