PB Valley Estate is located Valley 150 km’s northeast of Bangkok a comfortable drive of less than two hours from Bangkok Metropolis on a 6 lane highway. PB Valley Estate is situated on the edge of the Khao Yai National Park and is the birthplace of the Khao Yai wine region. PB Valley Estate and the Khao Yai region can be visited all year around as this mountainous region northeast of Bangkok is always a few degrees cooler than Bangkok. But similar to all of Thailand the best time for travelers is November to March which is the dry or so called winter season. The Winery is open to visitors daily from 08.30 am to 04:30 pm; please see information in the Wine Tasting Tours section. Harvesting of wine grapes is from end of January to the middle of March each year but table (fresh) grapes are grown and harvested all year around.

The vineyard settles beautifully on a valley over 2,500 rais (400 hectares / 1,000 acres), 350 to 380 maters above the sea level, guaranteeing a well-condition climate. The winery is spread out over 3,00 square mater, including a Barrique room housing genuine oak barrels made in France, each holding 255 liters. A total of 150,000 liters of wine, or the equivalent yields of 200,000 bottles, are natured there to mature every year. State- of – the – art technology and equipment is provided, of cause but it is the expertise, creativity and dedicatetion of our Germany and New Zealand – trained winemakers who create the difference to produce superb wine grown in tropics.
