After spending days and days at the beach, we wanted to head inland and see the hills and see waht Thai wine was all about. We took the shuttle provided by the Vineyward that takes off from Market Village (300 THB round trip per person - much better than we were quoted by a taxi). The setting is absolutely gorgeous - a valley of grapes surrounded by hills, a temple in the distance, pretty landscaping throughout. We took the complimentary jeep tour which gave us a nice background on the history of the vineyard and the wine making, and we did the 15 minute elephant ride which was fun and novel. You can buy pineapples to feed to the elephants after the ride. It seemed like the elephants were treated well. Then we went for the tasting and a snack - the wines were OK, still in the early stages of perfecting their craft, but they had a tasty Syrah that we enjoyed. The food was a little pricey, as you typically find at a winery, but nice to eat on the patio and look out over the valley. All in all they've done an excellent job with this place!
