Noita Winery is Finland’s first urban winery based in the not-so-urban Fiskars Village. Fiskars is
a small, creative community of only 600 permanent residents situated in the South of Finland,
around one hours drive from Helsinki.
Urban wineries are predominantly non-vinyard owning wine producers. The concept has gained popularity across the globe in recent years, with new urban wineries opening in London, Paris, Amsterdam and Gothenburg...and now in Fiskars! Urban winemaking moves the production of wine into cooler climates and urban locations, whilst fostering prosperous relationships with grape growers. It also gives the winemakers enormous flexibility, allowing them to harvest grapes from multiple growers across France, Austria, Spain, Italy, Germany and many more wine-producing territories across Europe.
Noita Winery sources hand-picked organic grapes from within the EU and transports them directly from the harvest to our winery in Fiskars. Once the grapes arrive, we give them as much respect as the organic growers do. With as low an intervention as possible, we sort, crush, macerate and press the grapes and allow them to spontaneously ferment with their own native yeasts. We use zero, or as little sulphur as possible and a full list of ingredients, process and grape origin is communicated on the bottle. Noita Winery will not fine or filter.
Once we’ve finished with the lees and skins, we pass them to our friends at Fiskars Brewery to make some really special beers... and once they’re finished with them, Fiskars’ Ägräs Distillery gets to distill them. That means grapes arriving in the village will be used three times!
Our 2018 vintages feature Riesling and Blaufränkisch grapes, both sourced from organic vineyards in Burgenland, Austria.
