About this Event

Vlerick Wine Club presents

Meet the Winemaker

Digital Tasting Event

We believe that the story behind the wine, enhances its taste. Once you understand the work and vision of the winemaker, the experience in the glass will be better than ever. Therefore, ‘Meet the Winemaker’ gives the floor to the man or woman behind the winery.

We learn more about the situation in the vineyard, the challenges during the production process, and the decisions that were made to capture the result of one year of work in a bottle.

We kick off this series with Kathleen Van den Berghe, a fellow Vlerick alumna, passionate entrepreneur, and winemaker. She is the proud owner of two great wine domains in the Loire, Chateau de Miniere in Bourgueil and Chateau de Suronde in Quarts de Chaume Grand Cru.

Kathleen is a civil engineer with an MBA from Vlerick (graduated in 2000). Before becoming a winemaker, she worked at McKinsey as a strategy consultant.

During an interactive digital tasting session, Kathleen will guide us through her two estates. We zoom in on the terroir & production and enjoy a tasting of 4 of her wines.

The set you will receive by post includes the following wines:

  • Blanc de Suronde 2019 - 100ml
  • Rose de Miniere 2020 - 100ml
  • Rouge de Miniere 2019 - 100ml
  • Chateau de Miniere 2017 - 100ml

Kathleen will also elaborate on ‘Wine as a Business’, the complex industry with global competition, structural overcapacity, a legally complex framework, and agricultural challenges.

This event is open for all alumni, wherever you are located. Shipment of the tasting set can be done in the whole European Union. If you are located outside the EU, please reach out to us as there might be an additional logistical cost, depending on the country.

The Vlerick alumni community would not be the thriving, dynamic organization it is today without the support of our valued partners:
