Fredholms Vingård (Winery) in Scania wins a Great Gold Medal in Rioja

The Swedish vineyard Fredholms Vingård has won a medal in a wine competition in Rioja, the International Wine Awards Spain 2018. And not just any medal but a Great Gold Medal.

We say a big congratulations!

The award-winning wine is ELSA 2017 and is a white wine made from the solaris grape. Solaris is sometimes considered to be a vitis vinifera grape and is sometimes considered to be a hybrid. It is common in northern Europe.

“More than 2500 wines participated in the competition,” says Pär Fredholm, “and only 4 white wines were awarded a Great Gold.” Fredholms Vingård is located in Tyringe, Skåne (Scania) in southern Sweden, and is run by Pär and Jenny Fredholm. They have a little more than 850 vines (!). Besides ELSA they make two more white wines and a rose.
