Wijndomein Oude Waalstroom

The Netherlands

"We grow varieties for the northern climate. Really different from those in France..."

In the village Hurwenen, located in the region Bommelerwaard, in between the rivers Maas and Waal, you find Wijndomein Oude Waalstroom. In this vineyard they produce quality wines in an organic, traditional and sustainable way. Because the vineyard existed already for 10 years before it was acquired by the present owner in 2007, they could quickly go in full production. 

For young owners Huib Overmars and Lotte Rippen it really was a dream come true to obtain a vineyard, and they are still full of dreams and plans for the future of this company.

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.
