Hua Hin Hills Vineyard (recently renamed as Monsoon Valley Vineyards) 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. You can combine the trip with a visit to Wat Huay Mongkol and Baan Silappin, 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.
The building itself is quite attraction as it was designed by the famous architect Norman Foster. If you are here in spring time look forward for the dates of the Harvest Festival.
