About NJ Wines
The owner of NJ Wines, Nenad Jelisic (NJ), has always been interested in science. Because of that he first graduated as a Geologist Engineer, then as a Master of Science in Civil Engineering, then as a Licentiate in Geotechnics and finally as a PhD (Doctor) in Geotechnics. For about 25 years ago, NJ began to be deeply interested in wine and wine knowledge. Since then, all NJ's free time is spend on wine tastings (a few thousand wines are tasted every year), oenology (some vineyards and wineries are visited and some wine books and many wine magazines are read every year) and work on the company's independent website. The company was founded in 2004 as a wine and spirits import company (NJ consulting & import), but has changed its focus (and name) in recent years on sharing the wine and food knowledge. The website is the result of a half life-long passion for good wine and good food, which has been provided NJ with a comprehensive wine and food knowledge, that NJ wants to share with others.

NJ Wines' web pages are Scandinavia's best web pages about wine, wine countries, wine regions, wine districts, wine reviews, wineries, wine production, appellations, the best vintages, grapes and so on. It is better to say that NJ Wines' web pages have everything that has to do with wine. The uniqueness of these web pages is that they are updated daily and that on the company’s main web page and all pages that belong to the "Wine glossary and wine facts" it is possible to see when they were last updated. Moreover, the uniqueness of these web pages is that any information, which exists on them, is checked extremely carefully i.e. if you have read some information on NJ Wines’ web pages, you do not need waste your valuable time by checking whether the information is correct.
In addition to wine and oenology, NJ Wines writes about the world's restaurants under "The world's restaurants." The restaurants, which NJ Wines has visited, tasted their food and wine as well as rated food quality, food taste, how the food is presented and looks, wine selection, decor, atmosphere, service and cleanliness.
When it comes to tasting and reviewing of wines, Robert Jonasson is Nenad's right-hand man. Robert, whose profession is a Master of Science in Civil Engineering (Geotechnics), has a passion for wine where the classic wine regions (Bordeaux, Bourgogne, Champagne and Piemonte) are among his favorites. He loves to taste wines from new grapes and new wine districts and reads all interesting wine literature he can find. Another of Robert's passion is to combine good food with good wines. Robert tastes and reviews a few thousands of wines every year.
It does not matter whether we have bought some wine ourselves or tasted it during some wine tasting or tasted it in some winery or got it sent home by some winery or wine importer, we rate it equally. The price of the wine is not taken into account when a wine is tasted and rated i.e. only the quality of the wine is taken into account, and nothing else. A wine, which is already on the Swedish market and gets 3,0 or more of 5,0 NJP (NJP = Nenad Jelisic Points), is reviewed on the company’s two main (Swedish and English) web pages under "Missa inte att prova dessa viner, viner som har fått minst 3,0 NJP av 5,0 möjliga NJP" and "Make sure to try these wines, wines that have got at least 3,0 NJP of possible 5,0 NJP". A wine, which is not on the Swedish market and gets 3,0 or more of 5,0 NJP, is reviewed on the company’s two main (English and Swedish) web pages under "The world wines" and "Världens viner".
