Wijnhoeve De Kleine Schorre

The Netherlands

"A bottle of genever persuaded my father to grow grapes here instead of vegetables..."

With its 10 acres Winery De Kleine Schorre is one of the largest vineyards in the Netherlands. It is located in Dreischor, a traditional Zeeland circular village, on the island of Schouwen-Duivenland in the south-west of The Netherlands. The old farm has an original black-tarred barn dating back to 1735.

In 2001 the construction of the vineyard began, and in collaboration with the Luxembourg wine company Cep d'Or, a choice was made for classic white grape varieties. The white wines are perfectly suited to the great produce Zeeland is able to offer such as mussels, oysters, lobster and flounder.

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.
