Off to Sweden in search of wine from Europe's northernmost winemaking region (and a lot more)

 I am excited to re-visit this wall-to-wall collection in Fiskebäckskil

We're off to Sweden, a week-long follow-up to my thirty-six hour jaunt last November. I'm particularly excited to try the wine from the Europe's (and I believe the world's) northernmost wine region, specifically from Vingården Klagshamn and Hällåkra Vineyard (will their northern latitudes evoke memories of the Massachusetts wine that we've suggested you try?). I'll also be flying aboard my first Boeing 787 Dreamliner, an experience that I've thus far been denied thanks to the likes of the Boeing 767, Boeing 747, and Airbus A330 that have recently stepped in to ferry me across the ocean. I hope you'll keep up with Wine:Thirty Flight via Twitter and Instagram. Special reports to follow in the coming months from:

  • Re-visiting the previously mixed bag experience aboard the British Airways 747 (this time from Washington-Dulles, not Boston)
  • Exploring Stockholm by foot, by boat, and by glass
  • Rumored to be excellent train service between Stockholm and Gothenburg
  • More time with the whisky collection at Brygghuset restaurant in the 400-person-strong village of village of Fiskebäckskil
  • Exploring Gothenburg by foot and by glass
  • That long-awaited ride aboard a Dreamliner (God save you from my sorrow, British Airways, if you "equipment swap" on me)
  • More?

Onward!
