Event description
Join us on 28 November on a day trip to discover the uniqueness of Belgian wines!

About this Event

While Belgium is already internationally renowned for its fine chocolates and beers, the Belgian wine is starting to also gain international popularity. Wine production in Belgium dates back to Roman times and took off again in the last century. Today, our country counts more than 250 vineyards, and the number is growing.

We invite you on 28 November on a day trip to discover these unique, domestic wines. We will take you on a journey to three wine estates in the Haspengouw and Voeren region. You will learn about the wine estate and their unique terroir, the production process, and the challenges of cold climate viticulture. Most importantly, you will get the opportunity to taste several Belgian wines in a unique setting.

Day trip programme:

10 AM - 12 PM: Visit Genoels - Elderen wine estate

The renowned Genoels-Elderen wine estate, located in the Haspengouw region, owns one of the largest Belgian vineyards. We will visit their vineyards and cellars, followed by a tasting.

2 - 5 PM: Visit of Crutzberg and Pietershof wine estates

In the afternoon, we will visit two more wine estates in the Voeren region. You will get the opportunity to meet the winemakers and taste their wines.
