After a short visit at Plearnwan Eco Village, we hailed a motor taxi to Villa Market for 50 baht/pax to go to Hua Hin Hills Vineyard. It was actually a short distance and we somehow felt we were being conned for such a high price for the short distance.

One of the main reasons that drew us to Hua Hin is Hua Hin Hills Vineyard. Spanning across a land of 500 acres at 140-210 metres above sea level, it offered great opportunity to decompress yourself by enjoying the scenic view of vineyard and engage in various activities there.

The stunning view of various wine bottles at Villa Market waiting place for departure to Hua Hin Hills Vineyard
The management of the vineyard provided round trip shuttle bus services from Villa market at 300 baht per person. The van departs at 10:30am or 3:00pm and returns at 2:00pm or 6:00pm daily. We thought reservation for the shuttle bus is a must but our emails were neglected. Upon calling to confirm with the staff at Hua Hin Hills Vineyard, they just told us to wait at Villa Market before the departure time to loop to the shuttle bus. However, it would be better to call them at +66 (0) 81 701 0444 for assurance.

Waiting area at Villa Market before departure
We waited at Hua Hin Hills Vineyard building at Villa Market while waiting for the shuttle bus to come at 3pm. The whole journey took about 45 minutes.


Complimentary grape juice upon arrival
Upon arrival, the staff guided us to the Sala, Hua Hin Hill’s Vineyard only restaurant cum bistro and was served a glass of grape juice. The scenery here was great.





Enjoying life
Premium wine tasting set
Whilst enjoying the scenery, we ordered a set of premium wine tasting set (650 baht) as we were still full to take in any more main meals. It comes with Monsoon Valley Shiraz paired with smoked duck breast, Monsoon Valley White Shiraz paired with lobsters with frozen red curry and Monsoon Valley Colombard paired with chilled crab meat with apple timbale.


Relaxing and enjoying the wine
We had zero knowledge on wine and just pretended to be elites, relishing the wine and relax there.
There are some other activities rather than wine tasting here. They have complimentary jeep tour at 1pm and 4pm, while elephant riding, bottle painting and mountain biking comes with a fee.

The whole atmosphere at Hua Hin Hills Vineyard was very relaxing. It is a great away from the routine life.

Other than the shuttle bus service provided by the management of Hua Hin Hills Vineyard, you may hail a taxi or tuk tuk there as well and the fees are definitely higher. However if you travel in a group then it may become a cheaper option.  You may request the drivers to drive you to Huay Mongkol Temple and  Pala-U Waterfalls.

We departed back to Hua Hin town at 6pm and going to have a great dinner there before starting the shopping spree at night market.
