Tips for you
Well worth the visit after a day of lake exploration. The vineyard sits on the slope of one of the surrounding hills, giving you a spectacular view of the lake and town of Nyaungshwe. When we arrived we were given a brief tour of the facilities and processes of making wine by a staff member with good English. The vineyard is owned by a Burmese man, but the wine is samples and tested by a Frenchman. There is a restaurant on site which has 360 degree panoramic views of the lake because of the glass walls. There is a 4 wine taster menu costing me 3,000 kyats per person. Unfortunately, none of the wines took my fancy, but there is a selection of whites, reds and even a rose.
