The apples originate from a couple of abandoned orchards on Zealand, and from wild trees growing in the landscape of Nord Sealand. The resulting fruit is sparse and often small and irregular, but always intensely flavored and perfect for winemaking. In the winery the philosophy is to do as little as possible, but intervening when necessary, to ensure that the potential of the fruit is carried all the way to the final wine. The wines are elegant and clean with a focus on the purest expression of the fruit. Nagelsbjerg Vin has been awarded both best Danish sparkling apple wine and traditional cider. Behind it all from apple to glass is Jens Peter Bak who is an educated artist now devoting himself to the art of applewine making.
