Upon arrival at Ba Moi Vineyard in the south-central province of Ninh Thuan, we felt as if all discomfort brought by sizzlingly hot summer had disappeared. We spent time indulging ourselves in a cool and airy atmosphere in a grape farm, and enjoying the fresh grapes on the spot.
Located seven kilometers from downtown Phan Rang City, Ba Moi Vineyard is in Hiep Hoa village, Phuoc Thuan Commune, Ninh Phuoc District and is easy to find thanks to its popularity.
The vineyard belongs to a man named Ba Moi, who charges no fee on visitors in hopes that more people will know about this specialty of his hometown, Ninh Thuan, one of a few areas in Vietnam that can grow this fruit.
Once entering the vineyard, we completely left behind all about the heat and busy life and just enjoyed walking under succulent grapes in the garden.
Visitors are allowed to touch the grapes but are asked to be gentle with ripe ones to make sure they would not drop.
After touring the vineyard, we were also invited to taste the fresh grapes and grape syrup made by Ba’s family. All are offered for free. It is worth giving it a try.
