Domein Hof in Dieren, vineyard – Dieren
Wine made in the Netherlands? That’s right! Since March 2004, Youp and Riet have been making excellent Dutch wines! On their two hectares of land, they organically cultivate the grapes from which their multiple award-winning wines are made. They cultivate nine different species of grapes that grow perfectly in the Dutch climate. Still, these grapes produce a wine that is very similar to well-known grape varieties such as Riesling, Pinot Gris and several wines from Bordeaux.
The vineyard is open to visitors; Youp will take you on a tour across his estate, where he will tell you more about his working method and the grape varieties. He’ll also give you tips on how to tell several smells and flavours apart! Be surprised by wines made in the Netherlands.
