Wijnkasteel Genoels-Elderen

Belgium

" I really had to start from zero, nobody was waiting for Belgium wine."

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.

Because nobody was familiar with Belgium wine they really had to start from scratch. A few years - and a study Oenology - later, the top restaurants discovered the quality of their wines and the demand became huge. Chardonnay and Pinot Noir are the only grape varieties that grow here, and in combination with the northern, the cool climate, they produce beautifully balanced wines with good acidity.
