The European Union granted Denmark its very first official wine region in 2018. DONS is the northernmost wine region of the EU and Denmark's first appellation, on equal terms as more familiar regions such as Bordeaux, Champagne, La Rioja, and Piemonte. Skærsøgaard's sparkling wine "DONS" is the first Danish product to receive the status of PDO, which is equivalent to the French AOC or the Italian DOC.
The wine region DONS consists of 500 ha of the glacial valley in the innermost part of Kolding Fjord, near the hamlet of Dons. The estate winery of Skærsøgaard is centrally located in the wine region and produces acclaimed sparkling quality wines.
The designation DONS (PDO) ensures a certified standard of quality.
Despite not being able to host the planned visits to the winery, good news are continuously ticking in.
The fields are beautiful - the plants are ripening increasingly.
AND our white and rosé wines have been quality-approved by a laboratory in Germany, which means that they will be released for sale with the designation of PGI (Protected Geographical Indication), starting from next week (week 19).
Skærsøgaard Vin is the first licensed estate winery in Denmark, located by the hamlet of Dons near the city of Kolding. The winery is owned by Sven Moesgaard. 25.000 vines are grown outdoors on about 8 hectares of land. The wines of Skærsøgaard are characterised by the Danish summer of white nights; slow, aromatic ripening of the grapes; and a traditional, craftsmanlike method of production.
