Stories in the Glass – A Different Wine Tasting

Practical information

Duration: 1 hour and 15 minutes 
Where: You have the venue
What: we have wine, glasses, bread, and stories
You taste five glasses of wine
Number: Minimum 10 participants
Price: 399 DKK per participant

Meet our storytelling sommelier, Mette Thornval. Here, you’ll experience a unique wine tasting combined with historical knowledge and a delightful cast of characters. A blend of captivating historical tales and the sommelier’s expertise in the world of wine.

A WINE TASTING FOR EVERYONE
You don’t need any prior knowledge of wine or history. We cater to those who are curious about tasting wine and who want to enjoy themselves in good company with colleagues or friends. Simply sit back, relax, and enjoy a story that relates to what we have in the glass.

WINE TASTING AS YOU KNOW IT
We will naturally discuss the wine’s origin, production process, and producer, as well as its defining characteristics. There’s also room to explore taste profiles and how each of us experiences the wine. From there, we take off on a historical or poetic journey not found in the wine encyclopedia, all while you savor the contents of your glass.

TRY FIVE CLASSIC WINES IN AN HOUR AND A HALF
After a journey through Danish history, into the realm of imagination, or out into the great beyond, we’ll land safely and be ready for the next tasting. As images, personalities, and places float by, we’ll anchor them in memory with the flavors left behind. Typically, our wine journey encompasses five wines, often classic styles, lasting about five quarters. The event can be held as a post-work gathering at companies or private venues. It can also serve as a prelude to a birthday celebration.

We will take you on a colourful and lively walk through Copenhagen where we explore history seen through Danish drinking traditions.
So let’s just begin by stating the obvious; – nothing compares to social drinking with good friends. That’s the way it is today, and it was always like that! On this tour we will combine tasting, chatting and learning. We will tell you about the traditions of brewing beer and wine through the centuries in the Danish capital and visit one of the iconic bars full of atmosphere and anecdotes.

You will hear what the poor man, the kings and nobles and the virtuous monks poured into their glasses. It may well be that the church preached strict rules and condemned the evils of alcohol and all the frivolity following from it. And sometimes national tragedy made way for invention. In 1807 the British bombarded Copenhagen and eventually stole our fleet. Horrendous! It was a defeat and humiliation of incredible proportions that we can hardly imagine today. But after this catastrophe Nyhavn with the iconic coloured houses changed to a very lively area! And who can imagine the city of Copenhagen without all the decorated bars and restaurants on the sunny side of this harbour promenade where the tough sailors used to enjoy their time off and spend the money they just earned at sea.
So good and bad come together and often in the company of alcohol. Another example of this paradox is King Christian the 4th, recognised for his great architecture that we still enjoy today. But his economic administration of the kingdom leaves no space for admiration. However, who else would have had 35.000 drinking glasses made specially for his crowning ceremony and replaced the streams of water in the fountains with wine..?

On this tour you are in for a treat of beer and wine traditions from the middle ages to the Renaissance and today. And we will of course also get to Carlsberg’s fascinating mix of eager innovation, sense of quality and family drama.
And one important thing: The walking pace is comfortable. There are five stops with tastings of beverage on the route, some of them on the road and others in some of the oldest remaining bars in Copenhagen. If these walls could talk! Ah, but listen closely, they actually do.

We also have a tour about Carlsberg (Link)

This tour can also be done as a cultural talk

Practical information

Welcome to a unique city tour with our storytelling sommelier. We have put together a city tour that is all about wine, the history of wine, and especially Danish wine history. Of course, we have stories about wine even though we are in cold Denmark. Even the Vikings knew about wine! They tasted wine on their expeditions to the Frankish Empire and to Paris, and they demanded wine among other things as compensation for stopping plundering.

EVERYONE CAN JOIN! If you like a good glass of wine and a good story, then you are a natural fit for this tour, where we visit a cozy wine bar at the end of the tour. Here, we introduce wine tasting in a way that everyone can participate. We give good tips for classic wines and what to serve them with. If you have any questions, our sommelier is ready to answer – whether it’s about history or wine.

The city tour starts with a look at Amalienborg and and 1700 wine list. We are passing by the highlights of Copenhagen and during the tour  you will hear the vivid stories of the Danish wine.  We tell the story of the Rosenborg wine and we also talk about the extravagant royal parties in old times and you will taste Renaince wine while listening to the story about the Kings son in law drowning in the moat.

After an hour and a half of city walking, we sit down at one of Copenhagen’s coziest wine bars. Here, we serve four glasses of wine for you. We tell you about the wines and introduce you to wine tasting in a way that everyone can participate. We don’t just talk about the wines and why they are different, but also about how to pair wine and food. If there are loose ends from the city tour, this is also where we tie up the last few details. After a total of two hours, the guide leaves you, but of course, you have the table for as long as you like.

This tour can also be done as a talk and wine tasting at your hotel.

Sara was our tour guide in Copenhagen, she introduced us to the city and showed us how beautiful Copenhagen is. During the 4 hour walk we stopped at the palace and learned about Royal family, visited university, some historic churches, learned about history of Jewish community in Denmark and other sites (sorry, little Mermaid was not on our agenda). Sara took us to the hidden spots which we otherwise would miss, gave us great recommendations for our stay in the city. We absolutely enjoyed the tour and the city. We want to come back!
