THE WINE PRODUCTION
The wine field was established in spring 2001 on a south facing hill side protected from western winds. It covers approx. 5000 sqm and both red and green grapes are grown.
Severe attention to the caring of the field is essential when making quality wine. Therefore the wine is only handled by hand and no pesticides are used. By March, the wine is trimmed and in late April/start May the plants are in bloom.
The amount of light in the growth period is crucial. It plays a big part the actual outcome and in that sense the extended days of the Danish summer is a huge potential for growing wine. Only in the final period of the ripening the question of sun heat will determine the full potential. The changing weather in late summer makes growing wine a somewhat crazy and risky project.
The harvest of the grapes begins around October. All grapes are harvested by hand and sorted before they are pressed.
“Growing wine in Denmark is pure madness, but the most interesting products are often made on the limits of the impossible.”
– Flemming, wine grower and host at Vranum Bed & Breakfast
