Grapes, commitment and a goal in sight - to make wine. The highlight of the year is approaching – the harvest. Join us to experience life at a vineyard during harvest time and learn all the steps of the craftsmanship behind a bottle of wine.
To make wine is a craft and now you have the opportunity to experience it up close. Never is our heart as vibrant as during the harvest. Grapes are sorted, crushed, pumped and fermented. The winery is alive and, just like all wineries in the world, this is the highlight of the year.

Experience the harvest
On Friday, September 17, the grapes will arrive to Stockholm and the work will begin. The weekend September 17-18 is dedicated to the harvest with tastings and activities.
Stay over during harvest
The best way to experience the harvest is to stay in the hotel. You can choose from our most popular offers or book just the room and breakfast. Tastings can be booked separately.
Visit the harvest without staying overnight
The harvest is open also for you who choose not to stay at the hotel. Come over and enjoy a unique experience, a full day with the craftsmanship of winemaking in focus. A good idea is also to take this opportunity to enjoy lunch or dinner in one of our restaurants.
Day Program - this happens on site
Throughout the day a number of activities are offered, all focusing on the wine harvest.
Join a harvest tour of the winery and the sorting area. A winery worker will tell you about how a wine is made from field to bottle.

The winemaking at The Winery Hotel
The Winery Hotel is the world's most northern urban winery. Here wine is made from grapes from Tuscany. The production amounts to about 10,000 bottles a year. Winery Red is the hotel's red wine, made with the Sangiovese grape variety with a small amount of Cabernet Sauvignon. Black Bottle Rosé is made from the same grape varieties but in a smaller quantity and is launched every year during spring time.
The harvest takes place in September, when a large truck gently packed with about 10 tons of grapes rolls into the parking lot behind the hotel. The grapes are taken care of during one whole busy day. They are sorted, pressed and pumped into the winery's tanks. This is a unique opportunity for hotel guests and other visitors to experience the craftsmanship behind a bottle of wine - for real.
The Swedish Ruhne family has been making wine at the Terreno estate in the Chianti Classico area since 1988 and ensures the quality of both harvest and winemaking at The Winery Hotel.
