I’m in Thailand at the moment, mostly on holiday but before I hit the islands, I stopped in northeastern Thailand to visit the vineyards of Gran Monte. Many of you may be scratching your heads – wine? made from grapes? in Thailand? Well, yes, and what Nikki Lohitnavy and her father, Visooth Lohitnavy have achieved in less than 15 years is pretty amazing.

I did a Google Hangout with Nikki (+nikki lohitnavy) while we were relaxing at the Four Seasons in Koh Samui. If you’ve ever wondered about Thai wine (or didn’t even know it existed!), you’ll find Nikki giving a primer on how they got started and the future of their wines. Having tried them, I think it’s a very promising future!
