A name synonymous with excellence in Thai wine, the award-winning GranMonte Vineyard and Winery in Nakhon Ratchasima stands out from the rest.

Located on the rolling hills of Khao Yai, one of Thailand’s most scenic tourism destinations, GranMonte Vineyard and Winery is a popular wine attraction for foreign visitors and Thais alike, offering activities such as vineyard tours, tastings, and wine and food pairing workshops. 

The 100-rai estate owned by the Lohitnavy family boasts cutting-edge winemaking facilities and winemakers who are committed to producing wines that highlight the region’s terroir as well as the distinct characteristics of the grapes, such as Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Chenin Blanc, Durif, and Grenache, among others. Since 1999 when GranMonte was founded, the Lohitnavys have been pioneering the winemaking movement in Thailand and have been instrumental in developing the country’s Vitis vinifera. Each GranMonte wine from each vintage is a unique experience, bounded together by Nikki Lohitnavy, Thailand’s first oenologist and the daughter of the GranMonte estate’s owner. 


In addition to the vineyard and winery, GranMonte also features a range of other facilities, including a restaurant, a tasting room, and a shop where visitors can purchase bottles of wine and grape juice, as well as deli products to take home to enjoy. The winery also hosts a range of events and activities throughout the year, such as wine festivals, concerts, and food and wine pairing dinners.

For wine enthusiasts with time on their hands, overnight stays at the Wine Cottage are offered, with breakfast, lunch, and dinner available at GranMonte’s restaurant, VinCotto, which overlooks the Asoke Valley and vineyard. The famous Khao Yai National Park and Heo Suwat Waterfall are recommended day excursions for guests opting into a staycation here.

With many different experiences on offer in one place, GranMonte Vineyard and Winery is a must-visit destination for wine lovers and those looking for a unique F&B-themed vacation in Thailand.
