Valokki

Cloudberry dessert wine

There is no fruit that better expresses the unique spirit of Lapland than cloudberries, and Valokki captures that brilliantly in a wine. An amazingly versatile wine, Valokki complements salty foods like liver pate and cheese, spicy foods, or a wide range of deserts.  For a traditional dessert with style, try it with leipäjuusto.”

Winery Process

Grapes are the only fruit that naturally contains every element needed to produce great wine when they are picked, but cloudberries are surprisingly close. We need to compensate for the lower-than-ideal sugar content, but we can then ferment and process Valokki very similar to how a grape wine is done. By using a high concentration of cloudberries per liter, Valokki achieves a stronger and richer cloudberry flavor than other wines or liquors.

After fermentation is complete, the wine is aged in tanks for four months before being filtered and bottled.
