Day 1: Inle Lake - Red Mountain Estates - Nyaung Shwe - Inle Lake
Your English-speaking guide and driver will meet you at your hotel at 03:00 p.m. and transport you to one of Myanmar’s best wineries Red Mountain Estates. Perched on a hill overlooking the lake at a height of around 3,200 feet above sea level this area is perfect for growing grapes in tropical Myanmar. Here grape vines sourced from Italy, France, Spain and Israel thrive in the area’s mild micro-climate.
Your winery tour will take you on a stroll through the grounds and vineyards, as well as to see the production of Red Mountain’s Cabernet and Sauvignon wines.
The winery’s hillside location is the perfect spot to view the calm waters of Inle Lake below. Next you will have a seat on the winery’s outdoor deck to enjoy a tasting of four of Red Mountain’s best wines and a light snack before moving on to Nyaung Shwe.
A short 15-minute drive takes you to the village of Nyaung Shwe which sits along the south end of Inle lake. Here you will explore the village’s quaint streets, temples and shop for local handicrafts.
Afterwards your driver will transport you back to your hotel at approximately 6:00 p.m.
