Sometimes people as “Do you make wine in Sweden?” A fair question. The climate is obviously not ideal. The answer is “Yes.” I believe there is well less than 100 hectares in total, but quite a few producers.
If you happen to be in the south of Sweden on July 27-28 you have a unique opportunity to taste something rather rare, Swedish wines, made from Swedish grapes. The wine fair “Smaka Svenska Viner” (Taste Swedish Wines) will take place on these dates at the winery Skepparps Vingård which is situated in the southeast of Skåne.
The following Swedish wineries will be present with their wines, all made from grapes grown in Sweden: Skepparps Vingård, Flyinge Vingård, Flädie Vinproduktion, Kullahalvöns Vingård, Vingården i Klagshamn, Snårestads Vingård, Åhus Vingård, Skillinge Vingård and Österlenvin. Around 25-30 wines will be available for tasting.
