This week we welcome two fine wine addresses outside the larger cities: Villa Fridhem in Östergötland and Kafé de Luxe in Växjö.
Villa Fridhem is picturesquely placed in the Kolmården woods overlooking the Baltic Sea. The restaurant is fabulous and the wine list includes a healthy dose of Champagne and classic Burgundies like Coche-Dury and DRC at great prices.
If you are doing the pilgrimage to Växjö to visit PM & Vänner (as every wine lover should) there is good reason to make a stop at Kafé de Luxe. The wine list is mostly focused on natural wines and therefore complements the huge classical list at PM & Vänner. Kafé de Luxe lists 1999 Jacques Sélosse and multiple wines and vintages from Domaine Labet, Domaine Derain and Frank Cornelissen.
