Wijndomein Aldeneyck

Belgium

"Perhaps life is more beautiful when we make wine."

Being owners of a fruit company, Karel Henckens and his wife Tine decided that life could perhaps be more beautiful when, instead of just growing apples and pears, they grew grapes and made wine. The vineyards of Wijndomein Aldeneyck now stretch along the south-eastern banks of the river Maas. The pebble and rocky gravel soil, rich in minerals, is perfect for growing grapes.

Wijndomein Aldeneyck is specialized in Pinot varieties and together with Chardonnay and Riesling this winery has created it’s own high quality signature wines.

Wijnkasteel Genoels-Elderen

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.
