Every Swede knows one of the best parts about the holiday season is glögg.

New this year, ASHM is combining the warm atmosphere of the museum with the warm glow that comes from drinking this special spiced mulled wine. Staff will provide special insight into some of their favorite collections, and following the tour attendees can join a light reception and sample a very special glögg provided by our program sponsor Sjoeblom Winery.

As noted on their website, Mikael Sjöblom is the Glögg Master​ as well as winemaker at Sjoeblom Winery in Napa, CA. He and his Swedish team have over 80 years experience making glögg, and are behind many successful name-recognized brands in Sweden. Mike emphasizes that "To make good quality glögg, it is imperative to start with a good quality wine. My glögg is made with a 2016 vintage wine. Only a handful of other wine makers also create glögg, and unfortunately, understanding the importance of the base wine is often lost in translation when adding spices to it." Mike prefers to work with natural flavors. A full-flavored wine to bring forward the fruit, and organic ingredients to create the characteristic glögg flavor are carefully blended, thereby eliminating the need for too much extra sugar.

If you would like to attend this special event, please register in advance by buying tickets through the link below. Tickets are $10/members and $20/non-members (must be 21 or older to sample glögg).
