Silverlake Vineyard, Pattaya

Posted on 06 December 2014 by ABPC

The Silverlake Vineyard, home of The Siam Winery is located between Pattaya and Bang Chang close to the Buddha Mountain at Bang Saray.  It is a very popular destination for both tourists and expats alike.  At many times of the years visitors are able to see the grapes on the vines and understand the whole process of the wine production.  The grapes are obviously not available throughout the year due to their seasonal nature but there is still plenty to see and do whatever the season although it should also be taken into account that there is little cover and it can be very hot in the afternoons.

The actual vineyard itself is owned by a Thai actress, Supansa Nuangphirom who visited a number of vineyards in the United States and decided to open one of her own here in Thailand.  Silverlake was seen as the perfect location because of its close proximity to Pattaya and its already established reservoir making cultivation easier.  The vineyard is particular popular with Thai Nationals, especially those from Bangkok visiting Pattaya at weekends.  The location is seen as a place of natural beauty and a romantic place for lovers to go and appreciate the stunning views and sunsets.

Silverlake is developing as more of a destination with more and more activities and grape related products becoming available.  The relatively recent additions to activities include, elephants, horse drawn carriages and ATV’s making it more attractive to families.  In addition to the wine you can also purchase raisins, grape juice, grape jam etc all produced from the grapes grown at the vineyard.

A food court offering more simple Thai food is available as well as an excellent Italian Restaurant offering both western and Thai food which would be perfectly complimented by a glass of wine from the vineyard.  Visitors are also welcome to bring their own picnics and sit around the reservoir.  As already mentioned about the afternoon heat, make sure you cover up, early evenings are maybe a better time for a picnic and the evening times are also highly recommended to appreciate the full, natural beauty of the location.

Getting to Silverlake is relatively simple. If you are travelling by car from Pattaya, head south down the Sukhumvit Road towards Bang Saray.  The turn is well signposted and easy to find.  Taxi meters, Songtaews (Baht Bus) and organised coach trips also go to the vineyard on a daily basis but it is probably too far to go by smaller motorbikes.  This really is an excellent day out and should not be missed.
