Wine tasting – Inle Lake, Myanmar

Myanmar, a hidden gem of Asia, offers to international travelers countless activities to discover the country, from walking the longest teak bridge in the world to hot air ballooning over thousands of temples in Bagan. But perhaps the most unexpected venture in this Southeast Asian country is wine tasting in Red Mountain Estate.

Perched atop a hill, on the side of the famous Inle Lake, Red Mountain Estate Vineyards & Winery is one of the only two wine estates in the country that produces best Burmese red, white, rose, and fortified wines. Seemingly impossible in a tropical country like Myanmar, the cool climate and nutrient-rich soil of Shan States’s mountains have all helped to create some unique varieties of wine. Over 400,000 plants from France and Spain have been imported and planted at Red Mountain Estate to ensure the wine is created using only the finest of grapes. At Red Mountain Estate, tourists can get a tour of the winery before trying the wine. This definitely varies your day-to-day Myanmar experience, making it suddenly feel as if you have been transplanted to the south of France.

A wide range of surprising good-quality wines and food is offered here, but probably the best way to sample the goods is the wine-tasting deal including Sauvignon Blanc, Rosé d’Inlé, Shiraz-Tempranillo and Late Harvest. Each kind brings you distinguish things-to-do and smell that you can’t forget. With a swish outdoor terrace, cheese plate nibbles, a crisp Sauvignon and views sweeping across the valley and lake, you might not know the tipsy feeling is because of the good wine or stunning sunset over the lake.
