U want good decent price wine in Thailand? The duty free shop in the air port is actually pretty damn good for selection and very good price. Think you can buy it before u leaving the airport ( coming in thailand ) They have some wines that it's hard to find in the states unless you special order it . I will do that the next time for a special bottle. For my self I'll just drink the decent stuff from home .

There is a wine shop in THE AVENUE shopping centre and also at Villa Mart which stocks wines from every where around the world.

If you really mean top quality you can ignore all of the above.

 Visit the wine cellar at The Royal Cliff Resort for real quality or e-mail them with your request.   [email protected].

 Expect to pay top dollar though, the last wine list I perused had at least one bottle for 8000 euros.

I was absolutely stunned at the absolute lack of identifiable known good wines in Pattaya.  Freaking Africa, South America?  Ok Austrialia has some wine.  But very little from Europe and not one California Napa Valley or Sonoma Valley seen in the entire country in the three weeks I was there.

 

And another thing, the glass of wine as poured in two places I ordered was very small, like perhaps four ounces of wine and the cost was like 300 baht for marginal/poor tasting white wine.

When you're fucking, its life.  Anything that happens before or after is just waiting.

Wine in Thailand is tricky.  There are some good reputable Argentinian Malbecs and Chilean Carmeners at some of the places mentioned above, however, due to the import tax, you can expect to pay 3x to 4x what you'd pay in California.

 

Also, the California wines are limited and I only tend to see some of the lesser-known wineries, again, at an exorbitant costs.

 

There's an Italian restaurant on Beach Road, most Italian wines of course, but a few from South American or Chilean wines, in a large cooling area.

 

A lot of businesses in Thailand, whether Thai or foreign managed, tend to serve red wine chilled, which is a no-no.  Serving a red wine chilled is like ordering a filet mignon well-done.

 

I once found this place on Soi Lenghee that sold wine by the glass, a Chilean cabernet sauvignon, boxed wine, for about 100-120 baht per glass.  Forgot the name of the place, but it will come to me if important.  It's the small air-conditioned place with outside seating closer to the Soi Buakhow end.

I've re-read this thread and conclude that you really should not be in LOS for the wine.  ;)

You can find top quality wines from many reputable vineyards at most expat-aimed supermarket, including villa market, foodland, and the one in the central festival sublevel.

 

It might be a good idea to buy your wine in a shop that also has chocolate on the shelves, as this would indicate that the aircon is never turned off. There's nothing worse for wine storage than often have the temperature go up and down by 10 degrees.

That in my opinion is a lot of crap. 

 

Many red wines are designed to be served at "room temperature".  

That is generally at the usual european medium type temperatures.  NOT the room temperature of the tropics

Many if not all good reds  from Europe,, Australia  or best of all New Zealand benefit from being brought down to around 20 degrees C

 

 A Pinot Noir for example is best at around 16C to 17C  A Cab Sav  18C  to 19C

The reason why many red wines should not be chilled is primarily for the aromas.

 

A nice red wine is not something to drink when your thirsty, not as a refreshment, and it's not something to be chugged.

 

Oftentimes, wine drinkers like to oxidize the wine in their glass, circle it around a few times, and put their nose in the glass to enjoy the aromas.  If a red wine is refrigerated, it takes away the unique aromas and if two wines, one of low-quality and the other of high-quality are chilled, it may be extremely difficult, if not impossible, to distinguish between the two as the chilled temperature will suppress the uniqueness.

 

Personally, I prefer Argentinean Malbecs and Chilean Carmeneres with the unique bite to them as the South American grapes tend to have the uniqueness of the high elevation, the volcanic soil, and similar to the Northern CA wine country, the fluctuation of the warm-to-hot days in conjunction with the low-temperature cool nights.  The South American, Southern Cone, too has these unique qualities with it's Pinot Noirs.  For these reasons, most reds, including Bordeaux, Pinot, etc. are best to be served at non-chilled temperatures in the opinion of many guides.

 

Here's an interesting article regarding a discussion of to chill or not to chill:

 

Red Wine, White Wine: When to Chill, When Not to Chill, According to Chateau Thomas Winery in Fishers

 

As for whether one prefers to drink red wine chilled, to each's own, whether it's cooking a steak well-done, putting steak sauce on a steak, or putting lemon and/or cocktail sauce on oysters rather than benefiting from the unique taste of "naked" oysters, it's up to the individual to choose how they prefer to eat their food, even if there's alternative opinions to the contrary.
