Wijngaard Apostelhoeve

The Netherlands

"Wine keeps me busy at day and it fills my dreams at night."

Winery Apostelhoeve, the oldest commercial vineyard in the Netherlands is located in the south of the Netherlands, in the province of Limburg. Where once apple and pear trees grew, the first vines were planted in 1970. At present three generations are working here simultaneously, a unique situation for a Dutch winery and even abroad not very common.

A calcareous soil in combination with the low-lying vineyard, a slight temperature rise and the experience of winemaker Mathieu Hulst , have ensured that Apostelhoeve produces white wines of high quality. The wines are made from grape varieties like Riesling , Auxerrois, Pinot Gris and Müller Thurgau. Recently they also started making Traditional Method sparkling wines.

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.
