wine farmer Jesper Paulsen is the 4th generation at the farm Lille Gadegård. Previously, the farm was used for animal husbandry, and in 1980 was converted to strawberry farming. The first wine we produced was therefore a strawberry wine. Fortunately, it was well received, and we started planting vinestocks in the year 2000, when Denmark officially became a wine country. Since then, it has grown to a whopping 89,000 square meters.
In 2005, the small pot still of 2200 liters was put into use. Storage takes place in an underground cellar of 50 square meters. Since the wine farmer is also an ordinary farmer and grows malt barley, it was natural to produce whiskey. The first bottle was sold in 2009, and was thus Denmark's first whisky
We have the red wine varieties Rondo, Bolero, Frühbourgunder, Spätburgunder, as well as the white wine varieties Orion and Solaris.
We also have red currant, blackcurrant and gooseberry bushes.
In addition to grape wines, we make sparkling fruit wines from strawberries, gooseberries, currants and blackcurrants. They are between 11.5 and 14% alcohol, and are made for deep conversations and sunsets.
We have a wide selection of spirits, liqueurs, bitters and schnapps. As the winegrower always has new ideas, the selection varies from year to year.
