Johan & Heather öberg
Johan and Heather met in California, engaged in a romantic vineyard in Santa Barbara married shortly thereafter, and moved to Sweden. The years to follow were filled with the gift of four wonderful sons, rewarding work, and travels.
The family farmhouse on Bjäre Peninsula brought reality to the dream of creating wine. Combining skills learned from other careers, their interest in wine, and their ambition for excellence, Johan and Heather have created a team of specialists with the goal of creating fine wines in the Swedish countryside.

By working with prestigious Domaines like Beaucastel and Chateau Sixtine in Châteauneuf-du-Pape she gained wisdom and honed her natural sensitivity that aspires her to create elegant and balanced wines.
Raised in the small town of Chinon, France, Romain, discovered viticulture and his passion for wines.
