In the basement there is a lovely authentic wine cellar in which you engage in tasting the wine you yourselves have brought to the mansion. (Excluded: “as we only rent Ulvhäll”) As we do not have a licence to serve alcohol, guests wishing to drink beer, wine or other noble spirits are asked to please bring their own.
This means that if your group has oenological interests you can carry out a tasting with your friends or colleagues and drink high quality wines without paying sky-high bar prices. It also means that you yourselves can decide at your leisure the theme for your tasting and select the appropriate wines. This, as opposed to the common procedure, which often means that you must first chose from the wines available at the restaurant and then attempt to come up with a theme that matches these wines.
Three white grapes:
For example Chardonnay, Riesling and Sauvignon Blanc.
The tasting leader describes the characteristic features of the respective wines before the participants start smelling and tasting. One can ask the personnel at a Systembolaget outlet to help choose three typical wines for each type of grape. In case one wants to do some research before choosing, there’s plenty of information online.
Three red grapes:
Same as above with Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot and Syrah.
The new vs. the old world:
Chose wines with same grape composition from say France and then compare them to those from for example Chile, the US, or Australia.
