Who we are

  1. We are a family of three: Me (Alfre) my lady (Kerstin) and our beautiful son León (one year and 4 months old)!

    Kerstin (my wife) is 32; she is a Sommelier and works a a sales representative in a wine importer company. Her wine knowledge is... impressive, to say the less! She is Swedish and moved to Oslo 10 years ago.
    My name is Alfredo, I'm a 38 years old lawyer and works in my wine importer (not the same as Kerstin).
    Kerstin and me really enjoy out door life, sports, and of course traveling. At least once a year we go one month to South America to meet the other part of the family (and visit some wine producers friends too).
    We swap home and believe it was a great experiece.
    Together we speak English, Norwegian, Swedish, Portuguese, Spanish and a bit of German. We love good food and of course, we are fan of good wines.

Where is it?

Your neighbourhood

Our apartment have an excellent urban - family friendly location in Tøyen neighborhood.
From nature to urban life, all is around us.
Tøyen is a colorful and vibrant neighborhood in the bohemian side of Oslo. Good restaurants and small markets offering fantastic value for money. Here the mix between the local community and immigrants from everywhere (I'm from Argentina and my wife is from Sweden!) is fascinating.
Oslo's botanical garden, the beautiful Akerselva river with its waterfalls, the Munk museum,
Grunerløkka (Oslo's Greenwich village) with the best bars, pubs and Sunday markets, are all about 10/15 minutes walking.
Only minutes away walking you can pass by the old historic houses in Vålerenga and Gamlebyen (With ruins from 930 - 1100) until you get to the fjord of Oslo, and it's fantastic Opera House(20 min). From the Opera, Downtown (with the royal palace, the famous Karl Johann Avenue, Akershus fortress and the ferry to the Islands) is a 15 minutes walk. If you don't enjoy walking the closest subway stop is 5 min away.
