he gentle wines of the New Valamo Monastery

The Christian faith is linked by tradition to wine. For this reasons, winemaking skills have been preserved and passed down within monastery walls for centuries. This winemaking tradition continues at the New Valamo Monastery.

T

he first monastery wines in Finland were produced in Heinävesi with great dedication at the New Valamo Monastery. The dessert wines, sparkling wines, red and white wines and liquors produced at New Valamo have ripened and taken on their own unique quality in the peace and quiet of the monastery grounds. The church wine used during worship in many congregations has also often been produced and ripened at New Valamo.
