The owner of the Pietershof winery planted 7000 Chardonnay vines from Bordeaux on the southern slope of the hill in Krindaal 18 years ago.
Not only did the vineyards grow, but the dry wine from 2006 harvest was recognized as the best one, according to VPS (Association of Professional Sommeliers).
In the Genoels-Elderen castle-winery between Tongeren and Maastricht they grow Pinot Noir from 1991 on the place of old Roman vineyards plantations. Twenty-five hectares of vineyards, rose gardens, ancient buildings and, of course, small cozy restaurants for wine tasting.
