Topical event

Come and enjoy a glass (or several) as we discover the lesser-known Belgian wine region of Boechout. We’ll explore the Oud Conynsbergh vineyards with General Director Kris Van de Sompel. And of course, we’ll enjoy tasting their award-winning, internationally-recognised wines.

Belgian wines are no longer a novelty. Their reputation is growing each year – and the wines of Oud Conynsbergh are no different. Their bottles feature on the wine lists at Michelin-starred restaurants. And the winery is testing and developing other varieties alongside their Pinot-Auxerrois, Pinot Noirs and Chardonnays.

Join Kris Van de Sompel, General Director of Oud Conynsbergh, as he guides us through the wine-making process from vineyard to bottle. We’ll also taste eight different wines accompanied by a locally-sourced cheese and charcuterie board. Bottoms up!

We’ll keep our fingers crossed for a sunny summer evening – and look forward to seeing you in Boechout!
