Traditionally, grapes for wine-making have been grown between the 30th and 50th parallels in both the northern and southern hemispheres.

Thailand has pioneered wine production in a narrow band in the north between the 14th to 18th parallels. Years of research, testing and development have opened up new frontiers in viticulture resulting in ‘New Latitude Wines’ premium wines made from grapes grown in the exotic tropical latitude of 14.3º north.

IN 1989

Dr. Piya Bhirombhakdi – a visionary entrepreneur with a great appreciation for the finest things in life set about his mission to produce wine with a world-class taste for the people of Thailand. In the pioneering years of Thai wine-making history, this was indeed a very significant challenge.

The first vineyard spread over a total of 20 hectares and was planted with Shiraz for the red wine and Chenin Blanc for the white, featuring French rootstock, and Tempranillo from Spain and with the harvest of 1998, PB Valley Khao Yai Winery celebrated its first milestone.

IN 1999

The 1999 vintage proved that quality wine could be successfully produced in Thailand. The first marketing success followed soon after and the vision of Dr. Piya Bhirombhakdi had become reality.

When Khao Yai Winery started it was the only wine maker in the region, however as more wineries emerged it was felt inappropriate to use the regional name on its wine labels. Thus Khao Yai wine has been renamed PB Valley wine after the owner’s initials.

The logo of the hornbill sitting on a cluster of grapes has an interesting cultural significance. The bird does not feast on grapes during the harvest as the logo could suggest, but is a symbol of Khao Yai National Park.

The Hornbills habitat is one with fertile forests and the bird is a sign of fertility for which it was selected as the symbol of the vineyard.

The present wine selection available at the PB Valley Estate are Chenin Blanc, Colombard, Shiraz, Tempranillo, Durif, Dornfelder and Cabernet Sauvignon but the expansion to more varieties of grapes in order to produce more PB Valley Quality wines include Pinot Noir and others…

Khao Yai Winery sits amidst a lush 320-hectare plantation, of which 80 hectares (500 Rai) is dedicated to growing grapes.

Now with over two decades of operation the estate has become the home of Thailand’s premium wines.
