World’s most extreme vineyards

11th June, 2014 by Lauren Eads

The Siam Winery – Thailand

FloatingVineyard

Situated in the Chao Phraya Delta (60 km south west of Bangkok), the floating vines of Thailand’s Siam Winery are perhaps one of the most unusual winery to make this list. Here, vines are planted on islands separated by canals of water which keeps the grapes from drying up in the intense heat. Known for its Monsoon Valley Label, The Siam Winery is currently the largest producer of Thai wine producing more than 300,000 bottles a year.

    You are missing the extreme slopes of Ribeira Sacra in Galicia, Spain.

  2. Zane Katsikis says:

    How about the deep volcanic ash dust of Santorini, Greece? These ‘soils’ make one of world’s finest white wines from the Asyrtico variety-grown on Santorini for at least 2500 years.

    The craziness that is Madeira is also unrepresented.

  4. Lisa says:

    What about the basalt vineyards on Pico island in the Azores?

  5. Colin Smith says:

    and I would add the Volcano vineyard on the big island of Hawaii. The name says it all.
