Between Tongeren and Maastricht, along the old Roman roads, in the municipality of Riemst, lies the only Wine Castle of Belgium.
This is not by accident, as the Romans had already vineyards in this area some 2000 years prior.

 
 
In 1990 the family van Rennes renewed the centuries old wine culture in the area. Once again is the beautiful wine grape to be seen all around the Wine Castle of Genoels-Elderen.
The Wine Castle of Genoels-Elderen is with its 25 hectares of vineyards, the largest wine domain in the country, and welcomes every year some 15000 visitors. Guides will show you around the park, the vineyards, a rose garden, the distillery, the press house and the cellars which date from the 13th to the 20th century.
