When it comes to wineries and vineyards, the first country that comes to people’s minds is Italy, but what people don’t know is that Italy isn’t the only place that has a healthy wine industry. In fact, European countries don’t even have a monopoly when it comes to wines, as there are also Asian countries home to world-class vineyards and wineries, particularly Thailand:

Thai French Wine

Thai French Wine is different from other Thailand-based wineries, which usually offer wines made in Thailand. Thai French Wine instead wants to be Thailand’s leading specialist in French Wine. They also ensure quality stock because unlike other wine importers that buy from traders, Thai French Wine gets their wines directly from the wine producers. This means that the inspection and QA reports are done weekly and sometimes even daily.   How to make a reservation from Bangkok: Phone: +66 (0) 38 713 268
