Hi there, I am told that wine is very expensive in Phuket. Does anyone know the appox cost of a botle of chardonnay.
Yes I was surprised at what I found it was a year ago exactly & although they didn't have a huge range that the previous link takes you to they had a good range ESP from Margaret River WA where I'm from, SA & many other states but a decent range of white & red. This place is certainly not fancy & yourv'e probably walked past it without a 2nd glance. Wine sits on crates a run down fridge but very friendly family we bought a couple of favorites Aud price & cartons of smirnoff real cheap for 2 teenage boys (18 & 20).
Will be there in 20 days & definately be making a visit there again.
I would guess about 30 diff varieties.
Thanks Shazgra for that info..definately have to check that. Its in Kata is it? a few directions? We are flying 5th Sept for 9 nites, so wont even be able to thank you personally, sorry...Regards, Spoon.
Sorry for late reply my TA account got lost & i was given someone else's for a while.. All sorted now.
Head towards the road 200 Pee road directly behind the holiday inn hotel. It's on the left hand side remember small deli type shop sorry cant think of the name but if 200 Pee road runs into ratuthit rd yourve gone too far.
Yes that is correct Patong not Kata.
Anyway, I have been here for a week now. Maybe got it sussed now. Put two wine casks in our bags. Refrigerate. Keep ure water bottles they give u at the hotel. Fill them up as ure heading out to ure favourite restaurant. Take ure wine cooler OS with you & a wine bottle cooler. We have been 2 a few places, where after a bit of confusion, they will bring out a couple of wine glasses.. Basically u r in biz..The first time we went to Two Chefs it was all good..Next time they asked if ok 400baht corkage. We politely protested. They buckled. Had a sensational meal..
Sorry, me again...priced some wines in the stores...there is a reasonable variety available for quaffing but eg Jacobs Creek 2011 Chard was about 650bt but
In a restaurant here about 1450bt.. Cheap Carafs are about 550bt..hope that helps!! I'd bring some, & buy some here. I tried a Chile Cab sav here at happy hour & paid 170bt for a GLASS & was impressed with the flavour...Cheers!!!
Thanks for the heads up Mark, looking forward to our trip 7 days & counting... Enjoy ur holiday :)
