Europe's most northerly vineyard?

20 Aug 2013 by Jancis Robinson

In the introduction to last Friday's wine of the week, from Sweden, I referred to the northward extension of vine growing in Europe, specifically mentioning Norway, where I knew that the Kellers of Rheinhessen had helped to plant a vineyard.

Klaus Peter Keller subsequently sent a picture and the following report on progress: 

'One day we'll manage to make a Riesling or Pinot in Kristiansand – but we need a 2003 vintage's climate…

'2013 was again far too cold ….will probably be a nice verjus. Anne Enggrav still cares for it. So she deserves all the praise if one day a good Riesling is grown there. I am only there every two years.'
