Why Visit Sweden?
If you’re looking for a unique food and wine tasting holiday, then head to Sweden. When you think of Sweden, its’ breath-taking natural landscapes, magical Northern Lights, and progressive attitude are what springs to mind. Sweden also boasts a distinctive foodie culture that focuses on the abundance of local produce and a surprising, burgeoning winemaking industry.
WINE TASTING HOLIDAYS IN SWEDEN
When it comes to alcoholic drinks, Sweden is synonymous with vodka and schnapps. It’s not a country that you associate with wine as the weather conditions are not conducive to winemaking. However, in recent years a small group of talented and tenacious wine makers in the south have been producing very interesting wines and working hard to place Sweden on the map as a wine-producing nation. Visit Sweden on a wine tasting holiday and discover this exciting, up-and-coming wine region for yourself.
FOOD TASTING EXPERIENCES IN SWEDEN
Sweden’s food culture centres on locally sourced produce. The country’s natural pantry produces Arctic berries, wild mushrooms, and edible plants; herring, salmon, and sought-after crayfish to name a few. It’s no surprise that the farm-to-table movement is extremely popular here. One foodie experience that embraces this concept is The Edible Country. A collaboration between Visit Sweden and four Michelin starred chefs, the Edible Country combines foraged ingredients with breath-taking natural scenery to create unforgettable outdoor cooking and al fresco dining experiences. Aside from a love of natural, organic food, the Swedes love coffee and fika - enjoying a coffee and sugary treat with friends - is a massive part of Swedish culture that we recommend you experience.
