Betuws Wijndomein

The Netherlands

"A great many things go wrong. That's good, you can learn from that..."

Winemaker Diederik Beker planted in 2004, together with his father, the first vines and now he runs a vineyard of almost 6 acres by himself. In the beautiful Betuwe region, among the many fruit orchards, he has 70% white grape varieties planted and 30% is used for rosé and red wines.

The wines LingeRed, LingeWhite and LingePearl are named after the nearby scenic river the Linge that meanders through the Betuwe region. It is one of the longest rivers that flow entirely within the Netherlands.

The foundations of the château of Genoels-Elderen, in the Belgium province of Limburg, date back to Roman times. The Romans knew already that the conditions for winemaking were really good in this area because the property used to have 25 hectares of vineyards back then. In 1990 it was this winery that started the renaissance of winemaking in Belgium by planting the first vines again. What started merely as a hobby turned into an impressive winery.
