The Wijnkasteel, or wine castle, of Genoels-Elderen, with its 25 hectares of vineyards, is the largest wine estate in the country. With a history dating back to the Middle Ages, there is evidence that the property was one of the most important in the area due to the mineral rich soils. After a period of very cold winters in the late 18th Century wine-making tailed off, but luckily, due to a number of passionate and pioneering winemakers there has been a real boom in recent decades. Genoels-Elderen started re-planting on these historic soils in the1990s and have seen the quality levels go from strength to strength. Definitely an area to watch!
