In 2018, the European Union granted Denmark its very first wine region.
The wine region DONS is Denmark’s first and the EU’s northernmost appellation, on equal terms as the perhaps more famous regions of Bordeaux, Champagne, La Rioja, and Piedmont. Skærsøgaard’s sparkling wines “DONS” received Denmark’s first PDO (Protected Designation of Origin), which is equivalent to the French AOC and the Italian DOC.
The wine region DONS consists of 500 hectares 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.
Due to the ongoing pandemic and the accompanying restrictions, we are currently unable to accommodate visits and wine tastings. As soon as it is possible, we are looking forward to welcoming guests here at the winery. You can read more about the possibilities of visting at “Visit the winery”. So, for the time being, we are still in lockdown, but our boutique is open – and you are very welcome there.
Opening hours in our boutique: We are open every Monday and Wednesday from 9 AM to 4 PM or according to prior agreement. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
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 9 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.
We offer different options for visiting the winery.
