Skepparps Vingård

Just north of Kivik, on beautiful Haväng, you will find Skepparps vineyard. The farm is run and owned by Bengt and Eva Åkesson, and the location was chosen by Bengt's grandfather for the sake of its beauty. Grandfather Åkesson established his apple orchard here, and the Österlen region in south-eastern Skåne is famous for its apples. Österlen is one of Sweden's major tourist destinations with a unique offering of food and drink, and with a fascinating landscape of hills, sea views and white sandy beaches. Österlen is also known for the many artists who have chosen to settle here due to the special light of this area.
