One Last Sip of Sun: A Tour of Hua Hin Hills Vineyard thumbnail

After three days in Hua Hin, Ian and I's relaxation retreat was almost complete. We'd ticked almost every box: sun, sand, sea, and sleep. There was just one last unwinding agent to attend to: wine. So far, our explorations of Thailand's unknown wine country had been a wild success. Two days in the Khao Yai district had revealed three beautiful…

Traveling Like The Thais Do: A Weekend In Hua Hin thumbnail

Happy 2017, my friends! It turned out 2016 was my year of vacationing like the Thais do. After seven years of visiting their country, why not take a cue from those that know it best, after all?

Two down, one to go -- our weekend of hopping Thailand's wineries was so far a smashing success. After spending our first day at Khao Yai's first vineyard and Thailand's one and only winery helmed by a women, we were excited to see what our third and final stop of the weekend would have in store. After a…

You Had Me At Merlot: Continuing Thailand Wine Weekend at PB Valley Vineyards thumbnail

After a fabulous Thai wine weekend kick off at GranMonte Vineyards, we were on to our second stop of the day, PB Valley. Appropriately, PB Valley -- formerly known as Khao Yai Winery -- was the second vineyard in the country to attempt growing wine grapes. Yet as the first winery to open in the now…

Wine Not? Kicking off A Thailand Wine Weekend at GranMonte Vineyard thumbnail

Think Thailand and drinking, and it's likely you'll conjure toasting to the sunset with one of the country's internationally famous beer brands, Chang or Singha. Or perhaps dancing on the beach with a brightly colored pail of cheap whiskey and soda with a handful of straws chucked in. Or maybe sipping an overpriced cocktail at a…
