GranMonte winery was founded in 1999 by Visooth and Sakuna Lohitnavy. It stands on 32 acres of land in the Khao Yai region, known for its beautiful scenery and national parks; this area has become the “Napa Valley” for Thai winemaking. With stunning landscapes, state of the art buildings and facilities reminiscent of estates in California or Australia, irrigation systems and weather monitoring stations, it has a New World look and feel. Their wine is still mostly sold regionally and is available in Bangkok’s wine bars and upscale Thai hotels. However, you can now find some in San Francisco.

Judges Comments It is easy to mistake this wine as coming from a classic New World region with its ripe plum and coconut flavour profile. The plentiful aromas are drawn from sweet oak, black pepper and raisins. Firm tannins make a bold statement of power and richness giving the wine a long, sweet finish.

Judges Comments Bright, youthful and shows a glimmer of green straw in appearance. Classic sparkling Chenin Blanc notes of toasted nuts, baked apples and puff pastry. Good presence on the palate while bubbles softly spread the green apple flavours leading to a dry toasty finish. A great example of the sparkling Chenin Blanc style. SILVER MEDAL: 90 points
