Domän Sånana produces only 900 litres of wine annually given not only its small size but also due to the fact that only half of the grapes grow to a size sufficient for winemaking. Rondo makes up more than 80% of the vines at the vineyard. Percy explained that he follows some biodynamic viticultural practices to control pests and diseases in the vineyard. For example, white clover is grown between the rows of vines as a cover crop given that it provides habitat for predatory insects and nitrogen to the soil.
When I arrived at Domän Sånana in the mid-afternoon I found Percy preparing for a wine tasting course he was hosting that evening. After a short tour in the vineyard Percy graciously offered a sample of some of his award winning wine and various locally-produced cheeses. The Rondo that I tasted had vibrant red fruit flavour (cherries and strawberries) with high acidity, as is typical of the varietal. It paired well with some of the softer, creamier cheeses.
