WANNBORGA VIN & LAMM
( WINE & LAMB )
- Situated in the Baltic sea on the island of Öland -
Övra Wannborga, an unspoilt medival village on Öland, is the place for many unique events.
Here in the most northern wine region of the world a wine yard is established since 10 years.
From the grapes growing there we produce both red and white wines and in the distillery we make different kind of brandies and Swedish snaps.
The wine yard and distillery are situated on a big farm with a lot of other activities as lamb production with it’s own butchery. Lamb delicatesses as salami, pates, dried and smoked ham etc can be tasted in the cosy restaurant together with our wine or bought in the farm shop.
You can also stay for many days on the farm. We have three nice cottages with 12 rooms and 24 beds ( B&B).
Bed & Breakfast
About the accommodation
There are three charming cottages on the farm with
6 double rooms, 2 single rooms and one family suite with 4 beds in two connected rooms.
Not shower and WC in all rooms.
The guesthouses also includes cosy sitting and
TV rooms and a conservatory.
One of the houses is suitable for disables.
In the garden you can find nice places to sit and perhaps have barbecue in the evening.
About the restaurant
Breakfast is served in the restaurant situated just beside the guesthouses.
During summer the restaurant is open daily and it’s an heaven for lovers of lamb meat. Here you have the opportunity to enjoy some our famous lamb dishes and taste our wines and brandy from the distillery.
Our evenings with barbecue and a small jazz band playing in the court yard
are something you shouldn’t miss. They are very popular.
In the shop you can find products from local foodhandicraft as well as local handicrafts from wool and fur. Try our dried sheepham or salami and you could think you are in Spain trying Jamon Serano or in Italy eating the Parmaham.
Most of the food we sell are organically grown, produced and certified.
One of very few commercial Wine Yards in this
We are experimenting with nearly 40 different
kinds of grapes to
find out who are best suited for our cold climate.
Our main species are Rondo, Leon Millot, Regent, Solaris, Orion.
But we also grew some well known grapes with
good result as Merlot, Pinot Noir, Chardonnay,
Our distillery is designed to preserve aroma and
flavour of the Distillate. From the grape pulp we
make a kind of grappa or marc and from some of
the wine we produce a “cognac type” of Brandy.
During year 2007 we have also started to produce
single malt Whisky.
Next project will be to make an apple brandy (calvados)
with apples from the Royal Summer Palace of Solliden,
situated about 10 km’sfrom our farm.
