I visited Chateau de Loei around 15 years ago. Back then, vineyards in Thailand were a new thing and I found the (un-) guided tour very interesting. Over the recent years, vineyards (mostly what I consider fake ones) are all the craze around Pattaya and Hua Hin. Meanwhile, Chateau de Loei has not made any effort to make it an... More

Took me ages to find the place as no signs in English. A lady from the local golf club took pity on us and took us there. It was very ramshackle, and being Sunday was basically closed. We were offered a tiny testing of one wine but were told that as it is low season that was it. We left... More

In my opinion, the city of Loei has been neglected due to the popularity of the neighbor city Chiang Khan. It has a beautiful national park along Loei River and is free to enter. A paradise for someone who likes peaceful nature and a mid-sized city.Loei has everything from the airport to shopping mall as well. The only issue is... More

A total waste of time. I was told they didn't have any red or white wine to sample but they had bottles of the stuff for sale ! Try taking a cork out ! Nothing to see here although there were some vines to take photos of. The actual "Chateaux" is nothing more than an old run down building acting... More

Being a European 'farang', I am used to visiting wine houses in Europe, that make the extra effort to educate and entertain visiting tourists............. visiting Chateau de Loei was a bitter disappointment. And I would not recommend it to anyone. The Thai here do not understand the quality most western tourists demand, and that's a shame, and missed opportunity. Besides... More

Loved the freshness in every piece of its "giant" sized macademia nuts. A must buy! 500THB in a 500g glass container. Perfect as gifts. Did not try the wine though. It is located on our way to Phu Ruea National Park.

Visiting this place was a huge disappointment. It is old, dirty and not much to see. OK you can taste & buy some wine but is all folks!
