Wijngoed De Reestlandhoeve

The Netherlands

"By means of music, sending out homeopathic frequencies, we influence the vines."

Dutch winery De Reestlandhoeve, owned by John and Wilma Huisman, is located on the provincial border of Overijssel and Drenthe in the valley of the river Reest and is, despite its young age, known for its quality Dutch wine.

They strive to make Dutch organic wines. The grapes are cultivated as much as possible in an organic and bio-dynamic way. The use of baroque music in the vineyard is not just an aesthetic choice but above all an analytical one. Research shows that certain sound vibrations and frequencies can have a positive influence on plant growth.  Does it influence the taste of their wines at all? You'll have to judge for yourself, cheers!

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.
