Visit the winery

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 and employs Katharina, Benjamin, Hans, and Mads. During the harvest season, numerous volunteers help bring the harvest home. In total, 30.000 vines are grown outdoors on about 10 hectares of land.

The winery is located in the Denmark’s first and the EU’s northernmost wine region (appellation). Skærsøgaard’s signature sparkling wine “DONS” received Denmark’s first PDO (Protected Designation of Origin), which is equivalent to the French AOC and the Italian DOC. This is the only Danish product with such a designation.

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. Since 2001, the vast majority of our wines have received medals at the yearly fair Dansk Vinskue, which is regulated by the European Union. Furthermore, the wines have accumulated more than 100 prestigious international medals since the vintage of 2006.
