Måns Zelmerlöw launches his own wine – Cava: Hola MZ Cava

Måns Zelmerlöw has launched his own wine called Cava: Hola MZ Cava by Måns Zelmerlöw. It is a dry, healthy and fruity Cava that is both organic and vegan.

Måns won the 2015 Eurovision Song Contest for Sweden with Heroes and is one of the presenters at the Melodifestivalen 2021 shows.

Launching a Cava was obvious for Måns, as Spain is his great source of inspiration when it comes to both food and wine. Måns lived for a time partly in Barcelona where he spent a lot of time writing music and enjoying the culture, the weather, the relaxed lifestyle and the people. In Spain, his already strong interest in food and drink developed further.

After a few weeks in Barcelona, ​​I started to find restaurants that the locals went to and got my first “real” tapas experiences. We sat for hours and ordered right after right, drank Cava late into the night and just enjoyed. With an enormous love for Barcelona in particular, and the surrounding nature, it feels extremely exciting that I have had the opportunity to make a Cava together with Hermansson & Co and the producer Barcelona Brands SL, says Måns Zelmerlöw.

Cava: Hola MZ Cava by Måns Zelmerlöw is available for purchase in Systembolaget’s order assortment.

Måns Zelmerlöw & Polina Gagarina will soon release a duet which will be the theme to the World Figure Skating Championships taking place in Stockholm, Sweden this year.
