Our marine climate on the cape with the mountain Kullaberg at the tip has a great impact on temperature, sunshine hours and precipitation. Our northern latitude provides plenty of daylight during the growing season and together with cool nights towards autumn it provides a long growing season that fosters nice mature and aromatic fruit with a fresh acidity.

We have 14 ha of vines in three unique locations. The oldest vines are from 2006 when 1 ha was first planted, then we have increased with 1 ha planted in 2009–2011, 8 ha planted in 2017 and 4 ha planted in 2019. Our green grape varieties are Souvignier Gris, Solaris, Donauriesling, Muscaris, Auxerrois and Johanniter and our blue grape varieties are Pinot Nova, Cabernet Noir, Rondo, Regent and Spätburgunder. In addition, we have a test field with 21 unique varieties.

The soil is heterogeneous with sand and clay, with parts of the unique Kullait mineral.


Sustainable agriculture methods

We take pride working with viticultural methods that improve soil health, soil structure and contribute to increased diversity in and around our vineyards. We keep herb and flower mixes between the rows of vines, landscape trees along our borders and we have our own beekeeping.

The wine production is managed by our winemaker K Felix G Åhrberg together with a dedicated team and our three consultants Robert Steidl (former professor of oenology at Klosterneuburg, Austria), Michaela Fischer (diploma of viticulturalist and oenologist, Elsenburg College, Stellenbosch) and Franz Schuster oenologist educated at Klosterneuburg . In addition to wine, we also produce dry apple cider as well as various noble distillates of fruit.
