Red Mountain Vineyard

Sample the best of Burmese wine while watching the sun set over the Shan Hills and Inle Lake.

Myanmar (Burma) may not sound like the quintessential destination for wine production, however the ground here is extremely fertile and being in an elevated position, surrounded by mountains, the weather is decidedly good for growing grapes.

Located on the side of the famous Inle Lake, in the southern Shan State, the Red Mountain Estate produces the best wines of the country. Since its humble beginnings in 2002, the wines are produced with locally grown grapes. All of the 400,000 plants have been imported from France and Spain, and the variety chosen after experimentations.

Whilst the wines are not likely to win any international awards, international wine critics agree Myanmar is now on the global wine-making map. The area around Red mountain is simply astonishing with sweeping views of the mountains and the lake, providing it a serene destination to finish the day, sampling their eight different wines and watching the sun set over the surrounding hills.
