Originally from the Netherlands, Jaap van Rennes settled in northern Belgium having made his fortune, like a number of his compatriots. A few years ago, he handed over the reins of the Wijnkasteel Genoels-Elderen vineyard to his daughter, Joyce, who studied oenology in France. So she is one of the few female winemakers in Belgium! With production covering 22 hectares, Genoels-Elderen is currently the largest winemaking domain in Flanders. Its wines, based on the emblematic grape varieties of Burgundy (Chardonnay and Pinot Noir), are of outstanding quality.
