Winemaking and Tasting Notes

GranMonte Elements Natural Wines are made in qvevris, the famed Georgian earthenware, for love of experimentation and seeking old and new methods of winemaking. They are the very first and only natural wines made in Thailand. Hand-harvested grapes are fermented on skins using natural yeast from our vineyard. These natural wines are made with minimal intervention, sulphur dioxide-free and unfiltered. The name “Elements” evokes the natural terrains and climates that GranMonte has been blessed with.


Elements Natural Wine Syrah’s style of wine is often referred to as “qvevri wine”. This organically-grown Syrah is full-bodied and packed with lot of mouth-coating tannins. On the nose, this wine show characters of blackcurrant, blackpepper, clove, earth and leather. 2021 Elements Natural Wine Syrah can be enjoyed on its own and is a great complement to various cuisine. Also a collector’s item, with only 358 bottles produced.
