Tasik Beris Vineyard at Sik, Kedah

 During labor day, we went to Vineyard at Tasik Beris, Kedah... before that i saw my aunty try to grow grape at her garden, which i doubt about that... until i manage to find more info about vineyard available at Malaysia.... Malaysia Boleh...
How to go Vineyard at Tasik Beris? Tasik Beris is 1.5 hours from Alor Setar, from exit of Gurun on PLUS highway, heading Sik and just go straight for around 45minutes. Vineyard is just before bridge of Tasik Beris... Jambatan Tasik Beris. 1.5 hours driving might be boring for kid if didnt sleep... but when wake up... they will cry....

Interesting signboard, Napa Valley Vineyard is 13479km away, and Beris Lake Vineyard is 4 meters aways... Vineyard at Napa Valley is free to access, but Beris Lake need RM3...

Is not a big vineyard here, and there is grape!! is red or black grape?

and green color, my father is so excited to try that... not allowed to pick that, so he just kiss that... that's the reason why mom always clean the grape before we can eat...

 For children, they will wonder why some many mini green balls hang around in this farm....

As i know, vineyard gone through 4 season for fall, prunning, growing, blossom and harvesting, and that cycle is once a year... Understanding from those on duty at Malaysia, after harvesting, they need to remove the leaf manually and prunning for accellerate growing of new branch, which will increase productivity of grapes.... Ohya, vineyard here is inside green house... to control the temperature and for same vine, harvesting happen twice a year... which suppose to sound good...

Before leaving, is not just the farm that you can visit if you come here, you can shop for the grapes as well. I try it… it is very freshie sweet, price paid at that time is RM15 per packet. They have the fresh grapes and also grape juices drink. Anyway... Mum said that is much expensive than pasar, but really taste fresh....

After leaving, Tasik Beris of Sik, we stop by at Glass Bottles Temple (Wat Charok Padang), located at Kampung Charok Padang, a lot of places here named in Thai, as this place close with borders to Thailand...
And FYI, Kedah is state, which having most Thai...
This temple is unique from other Wat, as the building is decorated with glass bottle, and there is a giant "glass bottle", which using glass bottle instead of tile or paint on the surface of construction....

Hi,

Are there wines for tasting?
The test of good grapes is in the wines they produce.
If not, it'll be a waste of time growing it.

hi seeseepg
no wine tasting, i think the sour level of grape at Malaysia is different, not suitable for wine... but it really taste good as fresh grape...
