Per Gessle goes into the wine business

UPDATED: Per Gessle is “releasing” two wines later this fall; Kurt & Lisa (named after his parents) and Furet (named after the neighborhood he grew up in.)

“The wines started out as being made exclusively for Hotel Tylösand but they turned out so amazing I wanted to have a go on the commercial market as well,” says Per to The Daily Roxette. “They are yummy!” A comment from an experienced connoisseur indeed! There will be more wines added to The Per Gessle Selection every year Per lets us know.

Kurt & Lisa will cost 249 SEK (€29) at Systembolaget while Furet will set you back a measly 149 SEK (€17). Per adds that the wines are damned great and that K&L should cost the double. “At least!” The wines will not be part of the standard selection, but have to be ordered. Kurt & Lisa is also a limited edition of 1,000 bottles.

The wines may be ordered at Systembolaget from November 1.
