The propagation of viticulture within the Philippines began in Bauang, La Union with Lomboy Farm as the pioneering vineyard in 1972. For over four decades, founder and so-called “Grape King” Avelino Lomboy has supplied the country with freshly grown grapes. He has also served as the trailblazer for the establishment of other family-owned grape farms, including likewise widely visited Gapuz Grape Farm.
Picking juicy red grapes is a unique farm tourism experience in Bauang, dubbed as the Fruit Basket of the North. Apart from the seasonal grapes, other produce such as dragon fruits and guapple are also available for pick and pay. Offering this kind of experience are farms in Barangay Urayong.
