It doesn't often happen, that one is unexpectedly beckoned into a vineyard and invited to some wine tasting. The funny thing is that it didn't happen while on holiday in France, but during a country walk with my uncle and aunt in Wahlwiller, a tiny village in the south of Limburg.
Wim and Lenie, who maintain the Wittemer Wahlwiller vineyard, showed us around, told us about it's history and the different varieties of grapes they grow. While it kept raining outside, we sat under a tent, with a view of the vineyard, and tasted some delicious wine, cheese and Apple syrup.
Visiting the vineyard is a joy. Wim and Lenie are very hospitable and passionate. You can see they love their grapes, wine and vineyard.
I was glad we had already climbed the hill. Further climbing on an almost empty stomach with only wine inside would have been a disaster! If you are interested in visiting the vineyard. Just check out Wim and Lenie's website.
We ended our day at my uncle's and aunt's. They live in a beautiful converted barn with a garden full of roses and Dahlia's. My uncle treated us to a 5 course dinner, which was absolutely delicious.
Peter and Ine, Wim & Lenie thank you very much once again!
Lieve groet, Madelief x
