Let me introduce you to an Italian wine region you probably haven't heard from: Alto Adige or South Tyrol. Alto Adige (in German Südtirol) is one of the smallest wine regions in Italy, but thanks to its geographical location at the intersection between the Alps and the Mediterranean, as well as the point where the German and Italian traditions meet, it is also one of the most multifaceted. If you are a fan of Italian wines and if you are looking for elegance in your wine

Spending the night in the midst of an Alto Adige winegrowing zone and getting to know fascinating winegrowers: that’s what makes a vacation in the Alto Adige Wine Hotels so unique and exciting.

Jean-Anthelme Brillat-Savarin once wrote in his ‘The Physiology of Taste’ (1825)": “a meal without wine is like a day without sunshine”. This reflects perfectly how the inhabitants of Alto Adige live their life. Lovers of food and wine, I hereby present you 3 mouth-watering food-spots in Alto Adige! Vineyard Lunch at the historic farm Seehofkeller In autumn, the restaurant Seehofkeller organizes special lunches in the middle of its vineyards from the 16th century!

Sizzling sausages, Glühwein and gingerbread: it will soon be Christmas market time again. "Finally!", one might say, but what's the best place to visit German Christmas markets? The Rheinland-Pfalz is one of my favorite regions: it has many historically fascinating places such as Trier, Mainz and Koblenz but also charming wine towns such as Bernkastel-Kues and Traben-Trarbach (famous for its outstanding Riesling wines). If you are looking to combine a cultural and gastronomical getaway with the best Christmas markets of Germany, Rheinland-Pfalz is the place to

The Holy Food Market in Ghent opened its door this weekend. It’s the second food market in Belgium and inspired by food markets in Barcelona, Copenhagen and Rotterdam. Fancy street food is hot at the moment. Michelin star chefs are opening luxury French fry shacks and serving ** hot dogs. So what in God’s name can you expect from the Holy Food Market in Ghent (pun intended)? What to expect? As I entered the Holy Food Market, I was pleasantly surprised by its unique setting. The

Santorini is mostly known for its breath-taking views, but did you know they also make great wines on the island? We visited SantoWines, which represents 1200 cultivators and produces high quality wines. Whether you spend a half day on the island or one week, a visit to SantoWines should be included in your trip. The vineyards of Santorini are one of the most ancient in the world and they are a World Heritage site. In its early geological history, Santorini was the core of an

After my visit to L'epicerie Du Cirque, I decided to add another restaurant to my list of Jong Keukengeweld (‘Young Kitchen Violence’) discoveries. Restaurant Ardent opened a little over three years ago on the Dageraadplaats in Antwerp. Chef Wouter Van Steenwinkel and his team want to surprise you with their refined French-Belgian cuisine, offering pure food with respect for local, seasonal products. I've heard a lot of good things about restaurant Ardent, so my expectations were high. Welcome to Ardent Restaurant Ardent has a great location. The Dageraadplaats is a cozy

Ik zat begin juni met acht Chablis Premier Cru’s aan tafel. Het was een aangename kennismaking, zeker toen er aangepaste gerechten van Bart De Pooter aan te pas kwamen. Hoe Chablis smaakt? Naar meer. Wat weet jij over Chablis? Als het een quizvraag in De Slimste Mens Ter Wereld was, antwoordde jij: Bourgogne, witte wijn, chardonnay, mineraal en heerlijk bij zeevruchten. Er bestaan vier appellations: Petit Chablis, Chablis, Chablis Premier Cru en Chablis Grand Cru. 780 ha = 40 climats De Chablis Premier Cru’s worden aan de linker-

Voor vele Belgen zijn de Griekse eilanden een ultieme vakantiebestemming. Toch valt er in Griekenland meer te ontdekken dan prachtige stranden en de goed bewaard gebleven archeologische sites. De Griekse wijncultuur is minstens even oud als de democratie. In tegenstelling tot wat we vaak denken is het Griekse wijnlandschap een stuk uitgebreider dan de goedkope Retsina’s en wrange rode wijnen die we vinden op de menukaart van het lokale Griekse restaurant. Een tocht doorheen de wijngaarden van Nemea. Belgian Wino werd afgelopen zomer uitgenodigd voor een

Luxembourg is not far at all. It's less than a 3,5 hour drive from Antwerp, Amsterdam, Brussels or Paris. But why has this small country always been a place I have been passing my whole life on my way to Germany, France or Switzerland? Wait… Luxembourg, isn’t that a town in Germany? Isn’t it the tax paradise where people speak French at home? After hearing all these clichés, it was about time to explore this mysterious country myself. After a weekend full of discoveries,
