Allt om Vin

Information and assessment of quality and price value of all wines, which can be purchased from Systembolaget in Sweden, are found here. New wines and new vintages are assessed as well, along with food that matches the wines.

Allt om Mat

The issue where all wines from the Swedish Systembolaget are assessed is of special interest. It is issued each year in October. Recipes and wines to go well with the food are given in each issue.


This journal was previously issued by Systembolaget but is now only available on line. Articles about grape varieties and wines and food-wine combinations were presented. You can now find the articles at Systembolaget´s web site

Web sites:


There is a lot of knowledge gathered here about anything that concerns wine, grape varieties, wine countries, food and wine combinations etc. All the wines included in the regular assortment have been tested and assessed. Flavour, aroma and colour are reported for all wines and for red wines, body, astringency and fruit acid and for white wines sweetness, body and fruit acid.
