Black Forest - new presentations

Over time we have had quite a couple of requests to show more about the true mood and spirit of Black Forest, our products and friends. So we took out the time and efforts to get it done!
If you can spare a minute or two you should not be disappointed when you take a look at
our YouTube channel and some of Patong's fine places

Black Forest - leading in internationally acclaimed wines

Black Forest selects our wines carefully. Based on a lifetime of experience and only after great efforts and research can a wine join BFs sortiment.
So it should surprise nobody that BF is an absolute leader in wines with international reputation. Among thousands of candidates, a number of BFs wines keep winning the highest ratings. See more about this here.

We have created a page about this.

    Quintarelli, the star from Veneto/Negrar - 3 red glasses in Gambero Rosso 2007

    Must wines in Gambero Rosso, the largest italian wine guide, are simply unawarded - which does not mean that they can not be quite good.

    Being awarded even one glass by Gambero Rosso is indeed hard enough. 2 glasses brings you into the final of the wine tasting of that year.

    Only about 1% of the wines are awarded the maximum: 3 glasses.

    Giuseppe "Bepi" Quintarelli is one of the few, The way to reach this excellence? Patience, throughout decades. Eight years in barrel before bottling.

    Gambero Rossi writes: "... a peerless, starry wine that won our tasting panes over unreservedly, and was awarded 3 resounding glasses."

    Black Forest visited this famous wine maker, and we are proud to welcome these rare and outstanding wines in our sortiment.

    Octoberfest in Bangkok with the original Hofbräuhaus Band!

    Black forest went all the way to create the right athmosphere in Nam Kaeng Din, Bangkok. All the way from Munich came the one and only genuine Hofbräuhaus band. With the famous Octoberfest bier and the weather being unusually good for the season the fest was on!

    Grab a Hofbrau here
    How would Thai girls (with one exception) look in traditional Bavarian style... well, now you know!

    The blasts from the trompet and the happy repertoire got everyone out on the dance floor...

    ... in fact the band seemed to be quickly acclimatizing to Bangkok's warmer weather. "Home? West? - East is Best!" as one of the stars said.

    Johannes Gebershuber Wines comes to Phuket

    Weingut Spaetrot is a venture between famous wine makers Johanna and Johannes Gebeshuber and the Gumpoldskirchner wine-growers, Austria's oldest co-op.

    Weingut spaetrot-gebeshuber produces approximately one third of Gumpoldskirchens grape harvest employing the highest standards. The wine gardens are cultivated according to the highest quality guidelines, with great attention paid to the selection of ripe and healthy grapes.

    As wine connaisseurs will know white wine can be made from red grapes. Spaetrot's Zierfandler is the most famous example.

    With prices starting from only around 700 Baht/bottle it an excellent value-for-money, and something you should do yourselv the favor of trying.
