Maybe we have to start producing our wine at home.

Illegal to do so in Thailand! Though I believe the fine is only B400.

Who cares illegal or not ? What are doing foreigners living in moslem countries where alcoholic drinks are forbidden ? I knew a lot of them, they bought huge quantities of grapes and made wine at home.

People only care when caught. It's the standard Thai response, maybe the same the world over.

First time caught, means not smart enough, after you are smarter than the hunters.

:offtopic: This topic is about the price and availability of imported wine in Thailand.

We already have a thread on homebrews and the legality of it here.
