More and more growers are becoming experts in the types of vines that thrive in the soils and climate that are special for Skåne – to make crisp, creamy, complex vintages. Skåne even boasts its own wine route, the “Route du Vin”, which is made up of more than 20 wineries turning out what experts are calling “Skåne sensations”. Try out wine tastings and take a winemaking course at several of the local vineyards. Enjoy a guided tour and follow the whole process from growing grapes to producing the lovely stuff in the winery.

For an even more authentic wine experience, join in the harvest festival and help harvest the grapes. Once the grapes are in the winery, the festival continues with dinner accompanied by wines from the local vineyard. And spending the night at the local winery or nearby hotel or B&B makes your wine experience complete. You’re spoiled for wine choices in Skåne, and on the next page are six vineyards guaranteed to give you a great viticulture experience.
