Genoels-Elderen Wine Castle

Combine your day of shopping with an exclusive wine tasting experience, just 40 minutes from the Village, at Wijnkasteel Genoels-Elderen.

By Maasmechelen Village

Located in Genoelselderen, a borough of Riemst, Wijnkasteel Genoels-Elderen is the only wine castle in Belgium. This one-of-a-kind destination offers wine tasting experiences and tours of the castle grounds comprising vineyards, a rose garden, a distillery, a press house and cellars dating back to the thirteenth century. Make the most of your visit to the Village with a stop-off at this unique, historic location.

During each 1.5-hour tour, you’ll be guided through the Genoels-Elderen estate’s arboretum filled with centuries-old trees, its rose garden with nearly 1,000 rose bushes in 24 unique varieties, and vast vineyards. Explore the Limburgs Levenswater distillery, as well as the new and old wine cellars – the heart of the wine castle. Along the way, you’ll discover the history of the domain, the architecture of its buildings and the details of the vinification process, from grape to glass.

After the tour, savour the results of the estate’s labour during a tasting of its most exclusive wine selection.

A tasting tour with three wine samples, led by a private guide, costs €60 with a €10 supplement per person. Joining an existing group tour costs €15 per person, which includes access to the estate, three wine samples and a guided tour. Other tour options are also available, and all visits are by appointment only.
