At a stunningly beautiful location, Muhu Wine Farm hosts more than 2000 planted vines in neat rows. It’s not enough to make industrial scale wine production, but for a dedicated small family with ambitions to make better quality wines after every harvest, this the perfect start. A young and quaint winery, the first vintage was 2016, they are at the forefront of the new wave of Estonian wines, a movement inspired by the days of 100 years past when Estonia proved itself to be a major producer of wines of all colours.
Peke Eloranta, a former Playboy photographer turned bakery manager, and his wife Ingrid, a former film director, decided to follow their dreams and visions of becoming wine makers, they found their perfect spot on Muhu and simply could not resist the temptation of focusing all their energy and time on creating a lively and welcoming wine farm. Being growers and makers is not enough for them though; on their farm they love holding tastings right in the middle of the vineyard and manage their guesthouse (overlooking the vineyard) with comfortable space for 20-30 guests. All dinners and lunches for guests are cooked by Peke and Ingrid, and the aromatic sauna experiences are designed as yet another reason to experience their expansive micro-cosmos. Everything Peke and Ingrid does is centred around their unique wine farm, one of the most Northern locations in the world for both winemaking and wine tourism. Their story is both artistic and experimental, it’s visionary as well as nostalgic, and perhaps most importantly it’s a combination of exceptional natural conditions and talented hard work. The flavour spectrum of Muhu island has radically expanded with the introduction of Muhu Wine Farm, and the signs are clear that it is just the beginning of a saga that is set to continue into the future.
