Wine festival


In late summer, when the sun is still warmi and you want to keep the evening just a little longer. When it is a bit easier to breathe and a late summer tranquility has arrived, the bay get together for a real wine party. Seven restaurateurs have each selected four wines representing their tavern, their food and ambition, the place we are in and places where we travel to get inspiration. Like a tavern always reflects the personality of the restaurateur, his or her tastes, senses, well, even attitude towards life, the choice of these wines gives a picture of who we are. The Wine Festival is a journey, in flavours and personalities. Start at any tavern, and stop at any.

2016 saw the première of the Apelviken Wine Festival. It turned out to be a massive success, where people went bar-hopping, dancing and singing. The wine ran out, but people were just as happy anyway. We did it again in 2017 and 2018. And we’ll do it again this year!

A journey of flavours


Seven restaurants in the same bay. From Varbergs Kusthotell in the north, to &Olles in the south. Just a few hundred metres in between. Start with Portugal, and wrap things up with South Africa. Squeeze Australia in between France and a Riesling. Or something completely different. Just as you like it, entirely as you please, kind of like you are. Wherever the mood takes you. Like Apelviken. This year Solviken takes on Australia, &Olles immerse in Italy, Kusthotellet in Germany and Johns Place return to South Africa. Surf Saloon look into Portuguese Wine, Brittas examine Spain and Nisses Bodega goes all in France

How it works


Every restaurant serves a sampler of four different wines from the same country. A 4cl sample is 25 SEK, 10-coupon booklets are 250 SEK. Special glasses provided. 25 SEK or one coupon. Bring your glass between the restaurants – and take it home at the end of the day. If you have been here before, you will of course bring your glass from last year – to come well prepared. In the festival programme, which you will find where you buy the festival’s coupon booklets, all wines are presented with name, description, region, grape(s), alcohol content and Systembolaget item number, where applicable.
