Review: Silverlake Vineyard (Pattaya)

Our Score

One of the attractions in the vicinity of Pattaya (Thailand) that is growing in popularity is the Silverlake Vineyard. Opened in 2002, it received a lot of domestic media attention and visitors, due to the fact that one of the investors is actress Supansa Nuangpirom and the winery was featured on the popular soap Soot Saneha. All of the surroundings (buildings and landscape) were remodelled to look like Southern Italy. This sounds quite cheesy but is really breathtaking, especially as seen from the main visitor center and the path leading up to it. This view in itself justifies a trip to the site.

That is were the praise ends, however. The expensive guided tours bring no added value: most stops of the little train reveal nothing extra, the voice-over is Thai-only so non-Thai speakers get no additional information, no explanation is offered when visiting the production facility, and the wine is … not up to par, let’s say. So do drive up there, enjoy the sights, but don’t spend your baht there.
