Winemaking with every detail in place
State-of-the-art technology meets a carefully developed Méthode Suédoise in the tranquillity of northern Sweden.
Harvesting our heritage
In the deep woods of northern Sweden, we have found the perfect conditions to produce SAV 1785, a sparkling wine made from birch sap. Every year, when winter loosens its grip on nature and the ground thaws, the rich birch sap rises in the trees to welcome another season of light.
This natural occurring phenomenon has proven to be an excellent source to make a well-balanced, crisp and fresh sparkling wine.
The birch sap is carefully harvested through small holes drilled in the tree trunk. The sap is then pasteurized and stored in designated containers to stay clean and fresh. The birch trees are not harmed in the harvesting process and the forest remains healthy and strong year after year.
Wine has been made for centuries and there are many known methods for producing different types of sparkling wines.
Our SAV 1785 is produced in a way that combines the "méthode traditionelle”, and the "méthode ancestrale".
We call it the ”Méthode Suédoise”. Before the first fermentation in the tank is finished, we add some yeast and sugar and move the birch wine to a bottle where it becomes bubbly and reaches perfection.
This is a Swedish sparkling, and the method was developed by us in Sweden to suit our raw material, birch sap. That is why we call it "Méthode Suédoise”.
