Our founder, Vansom Vilivong, discovered the fascinating world of fine wine some twenty years ago. He studied the subject. He travelled to many parts of the world to learn about climates and soils, to see at first hand the preparation of the soil, the tending of the vines, the manner of the harvest, the production, storage, blending, bottling and ageing of fine wines. He learned how to taste fine wine, how to serve it, how to match it with cuisine.
Now he wants to share his knowledge – and a glass of wine, perhaps – with his friends in Laos.
Our friendly staffs are glad to welcome you to our state-of-the-art facilities.
