It was “wine tasting in business class” with Qatar at the Select headquarters in Stockholm last night. Not only did we have a first class sommelier but we had authentic business class delights. Starting with a Launois Vintage Blanc de Blancs, known for its fullness, ripeness and roundness, we went on to wine tasting with sommelier Erica Landin, who is also a well known wine journalist.
All champagne, wine and food were selected from Qatar business class – classy and delicous.
|It was a beautiful set up - 4 glasses each|
|Here are guests listening to a presentation |
of Qatar and all the great wines.

the sommelier Erica Landin
Erica was trained at Sweden’s gourmet hideaway in the hills at Grythyttan and writes for wine journals like Allt om vin, Meininger’s Wine Business International, Residence Magazine and Decanter. Ericas favourite is champagne, especially older vintages from smaller producers. This was a great chance to try her taste in champagne – see my snapshots of our happy customers at the wine tasting, below.
Some guests are not included as some of my pics did not turn out well, but I hope to see you all soon again so I can take some new shots...

I also made a speech to express our happiness over the news that almost 3 months before the end of the year we have already passed last year's turnover... And last year was a good year.
It is not a coincidence; we work as hard now as we did 20 years ago when we started, and we have a great team. We stay proactively at the frontline with new developments – like our concierge service.
We are now part owners of Quintessantially in Sweden which gives clients great benefits. Free concierge service when they travel with us: restaurants reservations, opera, theatre and even advice on where to shop to get special products…
