Swedish winery gets a medal at the AWC Vienna

Sweden is definitely a cool climate wine country. We have a few brave wine producers, most of them very small and most of them in the southernmost part of Sweden. Fredholms Wine Estate in Tyringe in Skåne is one and recently this estate received a medal, a “seal of approval” in AWC Vienna for its white wine Collina Memoria. Congratulations! AWC Vienna is one of the world’s biggest wine competitions. In 2017 12,600 wines from 40 countries were tasted and judged by qualified jurors.

Pär and Jenny have around 850 vines. They released their first commercial wine in the summer of 2013. This summer they launched Collina Memoria and a rosé named Amici came. The grapes are Rondo, Siramé and Solaris. All three are grapes with good resistance to fungal diseases. A big advantage in this cool and humide climate. Read more:

    Det finns inte på Systembolaget, är det för sent för att beställa?

      Jag föreslår att du kontaktar producenten.
