GranMonte Vineyard is the story of a vision driven by Visooth Lohitnavy’s passion for wine. In 1999, a 12-hectare plot of land in the Northeast of Thailand, once a cornfield and cashew plantation, was about to realize its potential. It was here, nestled in the foothills of KhaoYai National Park, that Visooth settled with his wife, Sakuna and two young daughters, Nikki and Mimi. Soon, the land was cleared in preparation for his entrepreneurial pursuit. Little by little, Visooth studied vines and soil types, choosing the right varieties of vitis vinifera to discover those which would grow and yield fruit for the next generations.
