During the spring of 2018 we planted 26.000 plants on 5 hectares, approximately 12 acres. Today the field contains 5 different grape varieties, 3 white and 2 red. The varieties are so called PIWI varieties, or hybrides, produced by Vivai Rauscedo in the north of Italy.
The varieties are crossing with traditional grapes (Vitis Vinifera) and wild grapes making them both resistant against many deceases as well as adapted to our nordic climate. Unlike the traditional grape varieties, like Chardonnay or Pinot Noir, the hybride varieties require no chemical treatment and therefor the agriculture is naturally environmentally friendly and sustainable - all without compromising the quality.
The soil has high levels of chalk which resembles the terroir characteristic for Chablis and Champagne, France. We also have around 70% sand, giving excellent natural drainage.
Fleurtai - white variety
Crossing of Tocai Friulano. The high sugar content makes it very suitable for northern climates.
Strong notes of pear and almonds, followed by hints of tropical fruit. Wines are clean with minerality and suitable for short storing.
merlot kanthus - red variety
This Merlot hybrid gives wines with very high color, good alcohol content and big structure with scents of red fruits, violets and liquorish. Suitable for long ageing wines.
soreli - white variety
Crossing of Tocai Friulano. Differs from Fleurtai with a strong white flower scent combined with a petrol smell that reminds of german Rieslings. Suited for both young and aged wines.
sauvignong kretos - white variety
Hybrid of Sauvignon Blanc. This white grape is unmistakably a member of the sauvignon family, with aromas of grass, passion fruit and peaches. Has potential to make long ageing wines.
cabernet volos - red variety
Wines made from this variety show high complexity profiles with intense fruity notes followed by spices and pepper/tomato scents.
Due to high polyphenols and aromas, suitable for long ageing wines.
