Viniculture in Skåne

Swedish wine history began in the late 1990s with a few pioneers. Over the past decade, interest in viniculture has exploded and the quality of the wines continues to rise. Today, there are around 200 producers in the country, of which about 50 are commercial.

Most of Sweden's wine producers are located in Skåne, where the hardiness zone is more favorable for grape cultivation and the hours of sunshine are more plentiful than in many other parts of the country. The soil composition is highly varied, with different mixtures of sand, clay and limestone. Most of the wineries are close to the coast, with short distances between them. Perfect for a road trip through the beautiful landscapes!

When is the Best Time to Visit Skåne's Wineries?

During the summer months of June, July and August, many of the wineries experience their peak tourism season. However, some producers also welcome visitors during the harvest season in September/October. At some locations, food and lodging are offered, while others provide only winery tours and/or wine tastings. Check the list and plan your route!

The 17 Most Popular Wineries in Skåne

#1 - Arilds Vingård – Sweden's Largest Vineyard

Address: Lilla vägen 71, 263 73 Arild

Bookings: +4642346420 or info@arildsvingard.se

Located on the southern slopes of Kullaberg, Arilds Vingård is set in a beautiful 18th-century half-timbered house. It all began when Annette Ivarsson discovered a grapevine on the family estate in the late 1990s. That was the moment the idea of starting their own winery began to take root. A decade later, in 2008, Annette and her husband Jonas planted their first vines. Annette educated herself in wine science and became a sommelier, while Jonas built the winery and wine cellar. Today, they are the proud owners of Sweden's largest vineyard, with 23 hectares of cultivation and around 125,000 vines.

The cultivation is carried out with an environmental focus. The vineyards grow varieties such as solaris, muscaris, souvignier gris, cabernet cortis and a mutation of pinot noir called pinot noir precocé. They produce white, red and sparkling wines, as well as two types of mulled wine.

Arilds Vingård also operates a hotel, glamping and a restaurant where the food is prepared with local ingredients from the gastronomic Kullahalvön peninsula. In the restaurant, you can also sample the estate's wines by the glass.

Flädie Mat & Vingård, just north of Malmö, was founded in 2003 by restaurateur Nils-Bertil Hansson. The old farm was restored, focusing on hosting events, weddings, and catering, and later added hotel services. In 2007, when Nils-Bertil's son Martin took over the business, the first vines were planted. The first harvest was in 2010, and a few years later, the state-of-the-art winery was completed.

Today, they have 2.5 hectares and around 9,000 vines with five grape varieties: the green grapes solaris and phoenix, and the blue grapes rondo, cabernet cortis and regent. Flädie produces white, red, rosé, sparkling and dessert wines: “wines crafted with great care and much love from grapes grown outside the window and pressed and aged in the estate’s own winery,” in their own words. The grapes are hand-harvested at the end of September, and the cultivation follows organic methods.

At Flädie Mat & Vingård, which has been owned and operated by Håkan & Carina Wikholm since 2020, you can enjoy food prepared with locally sourced ingredients paired with the estate’s own wines. End your visit with a good night's sleep in one of the 28 tastefully decorated hotel rooms, with views over the vineyards.

The realisation of the dream began in 2012 when restaurateur Petter Jeppson, along with two friends, started Ivögården. Since 2017, Petter has run the estate with his wife Therese.

They now have around 900 vines of the grape varieties rondo, regent and solaris in the vineyard near Ivö Church. They produce nine wines: white, rosé, red and sparkling wine. Since 2019, Ivögården’s wines have been served in their own restaurant. They also produce two types of spirits: Ivögårdens Druvstjälk and Ivögårdens Gin.

A complete experience of food and wine in combination, a guided tour of the winery, and lodging in the estate's hotel, with personal service and a family atmosphere – this is the vision Ivögården strives for every day.

Common Grape Varieties in Skåne

Sweden's northern latitude means that grape varieties must be chosen with care. The most cultivated grapes are so-called hybrid grapes, or piwis. These are crosses developed in laboratories to be resistant to diseases, especially fungal attacks, and to withstand cold climates. Since hybrid grapes are more resilient than many other grape varieties, the vineyards do not need as much spraying. Some of the most common grape varieties grown in Sweden include:

  • Solaris – the most important grape in Swedish viniculture. Solaris is a green hybrid grape that produces wines with powerful aromas and notes of apple and honey.

  • Rondo – a blue hybrid grape used for red and rosé wines. It ripens early and produces wines with deep color and medium tannins.

  • Regent – a blue hybrid grape that produces aromatic wines with notes of cherry and blackcurrant, pronounced tannins, and a strong red-blue color. It ripens a bit later.

  • Cabernet cortis – a blue hybrid grape that produces deeply colored, tannic wines with herbal, green notes. It ripens relatively early.

  • Souvignier gris – a hybrid grape with a red color but classified as a green grape. It resembles pinot blanc and produces fruity, fresh wines with notes of apple.

  • Muscaris – a green hybrid grape that offers aromas of citrus, nutmeg, and musk. It develops high sugar and acid levels and is well-suited for sparkling wines.

Our cold Swedish climate means that white and sparkling wines are the styles most successfully produced in the country. With blue grapes, it is more challenging to achieve the right ripeness, but more and more Swedish winemakers are now also producing red wines.
