Welcome to Swedish wine country!

Twenty years ago, few people believed that Sweden would become a wine-producing country. Then a handful of pioneers decided to reject the popular opinion that it was impossible to grow grapes and produce wine in our chilly climate. Today, Swedish winemakers have shown that it is absolutely possible to make wines of high quality with distinctive character. In this exhibition, you will meet a few of them and hear their stories on the struggle of making wine in Sweden.

In this show, we exhibit a cavalcade of Swedish wines from the museum’s collection of historic bottles. We take a look at the modern history of wine in Sweden and focus on specific episodes in Swedish wine history from the 1950s and onwards. What has inspired Swedish wine choices over the past decades?
