Press release -

Vinordic School and ice champagne bar

Vinordic, Northern Europe’s biggest trade fair for beers, wines, spirits and ciders, will be held on 25-27 April. Visitors will be able to experience the new Vinordic School, a champagne bar made from ice and the Vinordic Rosé Wine Tasting Bar. Alongside Vinordic, GastroNord will also be held at Stockholmsmässan.  

One new feature at this year’s fair is the Vinordic School, providing information about various types of drinks: beers, wines, spirits, non-alcoholic drinks, ciders, cocktails, mixed drinks, etc. The school will be run every day of the fair, from 10:30 until an hour before closing, on a separate but easily accessible stage. Speakers will include sommelier, writer, journalist and glass designer Josephine Edelskog, Director of Pernod-Ricard’s Sensory Analysis Laboratory Per Hermansson, Austrian sommelier David Haller, Chairman of AICV (the European Cider and Fruit Wine Association) and CEO of Kopparbergs Bryggeri Peter Bronsman, and Ove Boudin, writer of the book “Grappa – Italy Bottled”. The talks will be free of charge.

“We want to give our visitors added value in the form of knowledge,” says Daniel Fritzdorf, event manager for Vinordic and GastroNord. “We will be providing knowledge about alcoholic drinks in a simple but effective way, through short thirty minute talks on one of our stages.”
In association with Josephine Edelskog and Munskänkarna, Vinordic will be building a champagne bar made of ice, which this year will be named the Josephine Edelskog Champagne Bar. Well-known sommelier and writer – and the Nordic region’s only dame de Officier – Josephine Edelskog will be responsible for the champagne bar. She is also a member of the Order of Médoc in Bordeaux, a Knight of Champagne, and the writer of the book “Champagne: din guide till njutning” (“Champagne: your guide to pleasure”). At the ice bar, she will be sharing the delights of champagne, arousing visitors’ curiosity and inspiring their passion for taste and fragrance. The bar will be created in association with La Gott and ice sculptor and confectioner Lennart Landh.

Vinordic Rosé Wine Tasting Bar
For the second year running, Vinordic’s rosé wine bar will be operated under the name Rosé Wine Tasting Bar. Here, you will find the world’s top hand-picked rosé wines. The rosé wine bar will be run in association with Blaise de la Croix, a PR consultant with a passion for rosé wines.

Vinordic (25-27 April) and GastroNord (24-27 April) are Northern Europe’s biggest trade fairs for hotels, restaurants, catering and fast food. The fairs are held every other year at Stockholmsmässan.
