Lomboy Farms in La Union: The First Grape Farm in the Philippines
Aside from the beaches of La Union, one more thing to do in the town is to visit the popular vineyard which was established in 1972. Lomboy Farms, the pioneer grape farm in the Philippines, humbly started with only 20 grape cuttings procured from Cebu with 25 hectares of land. Now, it has expanded not only in producing grapes, but also other fruits such as guapples and dragon fruit which also help in the agricultural sector in the Philippines.
Where grapes and guapples abound!
Pick and pay for your grapes!
The best time to visit Lomboy Farms is during the summer season from the end of March to May, as it is the best time for grape-picking. Here, you can learn about the grape industry in the Philippines, and get to experience a pick-and-pay activity with your friends and family as you visit the farm. Make sure to buy their post-harvest products such as their own homemade wines and jams, which make for a good souvenir to buy in La Union.
