When is Chateau De Loei open?
The vineyard is open to visitors from 8.00 am until 5.00 pm every day.
The car park has a large shop that sells the wine from the vineyard and also a large selection of locally produced goods, a great stop for souvenir shopping.
Where is Chateau de Loei?
After leaving Phu Ruea on the road to Dan Sai, you will see the entrance after approximately 10 kilometers. There are two entrances. The first entrance will have a sign over the road to let you know that you have arrived, this sign is in Thai and English. This first entrance is to go to the winery and vineyards, which are about 2 or 3 kilometers down this road.
After this first road, you will see a turn left into the gift shop car park. There are plenty of spaces for cars. There is also parking for coaches. A lot of Thai tour companies have this as one of their tour stops.

The Chateau De Loei vineyards
Down the first road, you will come to the vineyards and the winery. You will probably see cows roaming around the vineyards.
In the car park is a nice rest area to take in the views.
Behind the store, is a road leading to the vineyard and the winery. Visitors are welcome to look around both.
In the winery building, you can look around. There is a room for free wine tasting and retailing of the wines produced here. They have red, white, and rose wines for sale here.
The wine produced here has received awards in 2004, 2005 and 2015.
This is a popular tourist destination for Thai tourists visiting the area. For tourists that do not have their own transport, it is a little difficult to get to.
The gift shop has several local goods and wine for sale, so if you are looking to buy souvenirs, it is OK. There is also a rest area to take a break.
The winery is dated, and there isn’t that much to see. If you are not in the area and make an effort to visit, I think you feel disappointed.
They do have a website, but it is in Thai only.
