Wine festival

27 AUGUST 2022 11AM - 5PM

As we longed. As. Now it happens again! The most pleasant wine mingle of the summer. In a bay very close to you. Shedule the last saturday of August right now. You'll be busy between 11 AM and 5 PM, and probably the rest of the evening too. Bring a couple of lovely friends, let thoose you meet on the way join. Arm yourself with proper shoes, a hat for the sun and your very best mood for a late summers day that you will stay with you all the way to spring equinox. At least.

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 Surf Saloon tackle Portugal while &Olles scrutinize Italy and Solviken Australia. Varbergs Kusthotell cross the Atlantic to the USA, Johns Place returns to South Africa, Nisses Bodega grabs France and Brittas Strandveranda will explore Spain.

How it works


Every restaurant serves a sampler of four different wines from the same country. A 4cl sample is one coupon, 25 SEK, for some two coupons. 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.  

Extra Grapes?


Do you want to get the most out of the Wine Festival? Being here on time, and keep feeling the good vibes in the bay the rest of the evening without having to drive home. Book our 'extra grapes', a place to stay and a goodiebag. You get two nights in hotel (breakfast included), an apartment or a camping pitch, 28-30th of  August, one Wine Festival Booklet, a Wine Festival glas per person and a raft of  offers from us and snack at Nisses Bodega. All togheter, worth somewhere about SEK 500.  

20th August
Bike & Taste

It's the late summers most delicious biketour. Five stops at local, and not always-easy-to-find treasures. But it just 150 spots, early birds ...

27th August
Wine Festival

As we've longed. As. Wine mingle in Apelviken again. Seven restaurants serve wine from seven different countries.

24/9 and 1/10

The Oktoberfest has become a tradition in Varberg. The loveliest bavarian melodys will be heard throughout the bay.
