Inside the wine hotel The Winery Hotel’s brick facade hides an airy lounge with breathtaking ceiling height, big olive trees, cognac brown leather sofas, and a turquoise Fiat 500. The industrial decor is mixed with wine barrels, wine boxes and photographs that reveal the design hotel’s Italian connections.
Among other things, Jan Söder was inspired by Brooklyn when he created the hotel’s design. The idea of a hotel with in house wine production on a ground that was just gravel and sand at the time came from Jan’s father Einar Söder. He has opened and managed hotels throughout his whole life, but nothing as niched as this.
The Winery Hotel imports grapes from Terreno in Tuscany, Italy. This is also where the hotel’s own wine is made.
The hotel opened in January, 2016, and imports grapes from Terreno in Tuscany, Italy. Terrano is the Ruhne family’s vineyard that they operate together with the Söder family. The vineyard is also where the hotel’s own wine Winery Red has been made.
“But in November, comes the first wine made here in our in house winery”, says Ida Arnkvist, Digital Marketing Manager.
