Our Vintages

SIRIUS

Sirius is a German white grape from a cross between Villard and Bacchus. This grape variety also has a high resistance to various diseases. The plant has relatively large bunches. The Sirius grape was our first planting in 1999.

BACCHUS

Bacchus is a white German grape variety and originates from a cross between Sylvaner-Riesling and the Muller-Thurgau. The grape is known for its high productivity and early ripening which is ideal in cooler climates. In 2014 we planted the Bacchus as an additional white grape on the wine estate.

JOHANNITER

Johanniter is a white grape variety grown in the 60's as a mould resistant variety. It is a result of crosses between Riesling, Seyve-villard, Ruländer, and Gutedel. Harvest time is a little earlier in the year.

The grape is fairly resistant to downy mildew and powdery mildew and is also frost-resistant. The Johanniter is our latest addition to the range of white grapes.

REGENT

Regent originated in Germany as a cross between Diana (Sylvaner x Müller-Thurgau) and Chambourcin whose origin is unclear. It is also a grape with high resistance to fungal diseases such as mildew. The variety produces small to medium-sized blueberries on small to medium-sized, slightly compact bunches. Its leaves turn a beautiful red in the autumn.

LEON MILLOT

Léon Millot is a red grape and originated in Colmar, France from the grafting of Goldriesling on the Millardet et de Grasset 101-14 rootstock.  Léon Millot has a higher resistance to powdery mildew and to Botrytis.  The bunches are relatively small and compact.

We have chosen resistant grapes in order to spray as little as possible. These varieties are known to grow well in our temperate Belgian climate.
