Denmark vs. Germany

The Danish wines will be presented by our very own sommelier and restaurant manager, Mathias Beinholt, who has invited his good friend and mentor Mads Jordansen from Winelab to challenge us with a selection of German wines. The two wine lovers will guide you through the evening’s wines, and tell you everything you want to know about their origin, production, and characteristics.

Anticipate a lively evening filled with engaging tales and anecdotes as the two good friends share their passion and stories. This evening offers, among other things, an insight into the development of the Danish beverage and the success of the winemakers, despite climatic challenges. At the same time, we will delve into the historical roots of the German wine landscape and their innovative approach to wine production.

The event starts at 6:00 PM. We expect to be finished by 9:00 PM at the latest.

Please note that this event is a social dining experience, where you will be seated at a table with other guests.
