Our guide was very good and managed to bring the history of the castle, the method of winemaking and the "small stories" into an exciting 2 hour tour. Afterwards the... More

One off the only wine castles in Belgium (or maybe the only one). Nice to have the tour and taste some Belgian wine. Very nice Belgian wine.

Great guided tours through the vineyards, press house, distillery and old cellars. Wine tastings with some snacks. Learn how wine is made from the plant to the glass. Bring boots on a rainy day. Say hi to Jaap.

She was able to relay information in such a wine that our non-wine drinking friends were able to understand the wine process. The wines were good and they even had a distillery on site... More
