Smooth Roads to Chateau de Loei Wine Tasting

October 10, 2013 by Khiri Travel | Filed Under: , , ,

The quality of the roads often makes driving upcountry in Thailand a pleasure, perfect for self-drive holidays. One of the routes Khiri Travel Thailand has prepared starts in Phitsanulok and takes travelers to Nong Khai past Dan Sai and the charming town of Chiang Kham for a total of four days. The scenery is terrific.


On the way, travelers see Phu Hin Rongkla National Park, where the Thai communist party had their headquarters from 1967 till 1982. A visit to the Phi Ta Khon Museum (dedicated to the colorful Phi Ta Khon festival, held each June) and a drive along the mythical Mekong River are other highlights of this road trip.

On the second day, the road through the hills of Phu Rua National Park, leads guests to the vineyard of Chateau de Loei. Owned by Dr. Chaijudh Karnasuta (born in the year of the rooster, hence the logo) the first wine was bottled in 1995. The climate in Loei Province is quite similar to that of southern France, explaining the presence of a winery in this part of Thailand.

Chateau de Loei’s red wine is internationally known and the vineyard’s Chenin Blanc has also been well received. The winery opens for tours and tastings daily from 8 am until 4 pm.

After the last overnight in Nong Khai, travelers can continue their trip into Laos, or drive a little further to the airport of Udon Thani for an onward flight to Bangkok or Phuket. Other vineyards in Thailand are located in Khao Yai and near Hua Hin.
