Top 10 extraordinary vineyards

4. Hua Hin Hills Vineyard, Siam Winery, Thailand

1_bg

The most unusual aspect of this winery is its workers, at least to western eyes. The Hua Hin Hill vineyard on the eastern coast of the Gulf of Thailand employs a team of elephants to tend its vines, owing for spectacular scenes across its vineyards which back onto forest-covered mountains.

Grapes picked from the Hua Hin vineyard are used to produce Monsoon Valley Wines, which is owned by Thailand’s Siam winery, one of the country’s biggest producers. The Hua Hin vineyard was planted in 2004 on a former elephant corral where wild Asian elephants were domesticated by their keepers. Siam Winery started developing the Hua Hin site after successfully experimenting at the nearby Royal Research Station at Huay Sai in 2003.

A working vineyard, it also welcomes visitors who can dine al fresco and take a ride through the vines by elephant.
