“The Abba wine tasting is all about friendships and contacts between two countries that are far from each other,” says Nadja Karlsson, Tasting Room manager at Stockholm’s Spritmuseum. “Participants get a full-bodied white wine such as Chardonnay that was typical of the time. To make it a little more interesting, I choose a Semillon wine from Australia’s Hunter Valley. Then we play lots of Abba, talking about the Australian tour in 1977 (famously captured in Lasse Hallström’s Abba: The Movie), before moving on to a full-bodied red Syrah wine from the Barossa Valley in South Australia. Finally we end with a champagne tribute to the Abba song, “Happy New Year,” pairing it with a Langres cheese from the Champagne region.” Read more about Karlsson here.
