A Celebration of Wine and Love

A celebration of wine and love at Nordic Light Hotel
A love of life is the theme for this spring and summer at Stockholm’s design hotel. In connection with Gastronomic Week in Stockholm, Nordic Light Hotel will be opening up its American wine cellar and adorning the hotel with symbols of love and passion. Guests will be welcomed with a “heart-felt” light greeting in each of the hotel rooms, and will be able to book an exclusive wine and love package. Wine+Light=LOVE runs from April 18 until August 8. “We are showcasing the fantastic wines in our wine cellar,” says Anders Litzén, sommelier and restaurant manager at Nordic Light Hotel, who spent eight years in the USA working with wine. “Our collection of American wines includes gems from the Napa Valley, Santa Barbara and the Willamette Valley. American wine experts are often surprised by some of the exclusive vintages we have managed to obtain.”
During the spring, Anders will be inviting friends from the world of American wine to give talks, and various guest appearances will be held featuring the well-known Swedish wine experts Jens Dolk, Michel Jamais and Elke Jung. During the promotional period, anyone who would like to know more about American wines can book a simple mini tasting session at Light Bar & Lounge. Each week, different themed “wine tours” will be offered, featuring four selected wines. These wines will be accompanied by a gastronomic experience, with head chef Tobias Andersson selecting anything from chocolate and cheeses to Swedish tapas and oysters.
Nordic Light Hotel is famous for its lighting, and guests can change the lighting in their rooms themselves. The light experience for Wine+Light=LOVE is continued with a “heart-felt” light greeting in each room. The hotel’s LOVE package is perfect for those who really want to celebrate love, with sparkling wine, fruit, home-made chocolate and a kit containing romantic items. You can also request your own light message. Why not surprise that special someone with a “Marry me!” or “I love you!” message in your hotel room?
