The Apostelhoeve

Wine estate in Limburg

The Dutch wine tradition has its origins in Roman times, after the Middle Ages the Dutch wine tradition gave way to other forms of agricultural activity. In 1970, the first vines returned to the southern slopes of the Jekerdal, on the Apostelhoeve. The Apostelhoeve, one of Limburg's most beautiful spots on top of the Louwberg, is the oldest of the Netherlands and one of the largest wine estates in the Netherlands.
The Apostelhoeve wine estate currently consists of 14 hectares, where 5 different grape varieties have been planted: Müller-Thurgau, Auxerrois, Riesling, Pinot Gris and since 2020 also Viognier. These grape varieties currently provide six beautiful, dry, white wines. In addition, the Apostelhoeve also makes two beautiful sparkling wines.
