Our restaurant manager and head sommelier, Janni Berndt Dahl, is Sweden’s first female Champagne Knight!

We at Spesso are immensely proud to announce that our very own Janni Berndt Dahl has become the first Swedish woman to receive the highly esteemed title of Champagne Knight, an honor awarded by L’Ordre des Coteaux de Champagne. This historic moment marks not only a milestone in Janni’s career but also for gender equality within the wine industry.

Janni, who serves as both the restaurant manager and head sommelier here at Spesso, has played a pivotal role in the success of our restaurant since its inception in 2020. With an impressive background from several renowned restaurants and as the chairperson of the Swedish Sommelier Association, Janni continues to inspire and lead not only our team but also the broader sommelier community in Sweden.

L’Ordre des Coteaux de Champagne, which has its roots in the French 17th century and was revived by François Taittinger in 1956, recognizes individuals who demonstrate exceptional skill and passion for Champagne. As a member of this exclusive group, and now alongside Swedish Champagne masters like Richard Juhlin, Janni is a true ambassador for both our restaurant and Champagne as a whole.

We are tremendously proud of Janni’s groundbreaking achievement and look forward to celebrating this with both our team and our guests here at Spesso. Congratulations, Janni, on this well-deserved honor!
