Discovering Wallonia’s Vineyards and Distilleries

The main varieties of Wallonia’s wines and spirits Walloon wines are mainly white, sparkling and sweet wines but you also find some red wines. The annual production of bottles is almost a million units.

Belgians are great lovers of wines and spirits which they like to associate with the culinary arts and also with cultural and social exchanges.

Wallonia uses two types of production: • Traditional grape varieties (Pinot noir, Pinot gris, Pinot Auxerrois, Chardonnay…) ;

This map takes you to meet producers amid their vines or on a hillside, in their wine cellars or in their distilleries.

• Hybrid grape varieties (Solaris, Bacchus and Hélios for white, Régent and Limberger for red…).

The history of Walloon vineyards goes back to the Middle Ages. In the 14th century every town had their own vineyard. The production of wine was abandoned during the Renaissance and started again in 1960s. Since the beginning of the 21st century and mainly these last ten years, a keen interest in wine has become apparent. More and more wine growers have embarked on this great adventure. There are 230 vineyards in Belgium including a little more than 150 in Wallonia. Only about 40 winemakers sell their production. Alongside the work of these enthusiasts, associations, clubs and other tasting schools are emerging.

• Côtes de Sambre et Meuse wines; • Crémants de Wallonie (sparkling wine); • Vins Mousseux de Qualité de Wallonie (or Wallonia Quality sparkling wines). and a designation with indication géographique protégée (IGP) or Protected Geographical Indication: •V  in de Pays des Jardins de Wallonie (local wine).

Spirits are also more popular than ever, and not just for finishing a good meal or celebrating a lovely event in a festive way. The menus of numerous cocktail bars, which are flourishing in our regions, are full of them. Belgians also know how to enjoy the brandies, liqueurs, fruit wines and whiskies produced in Wallonia that are renowned well beyond our borders.

There are three AOPs - appellations d’origine protégée (Protected Appellations of Origin)

Amongst the most popular spirits in Wallonia we find the different varieties of Pékèts (alcohol made from grains or berries distilled mainly in the Meuse region, also called Genièvre or Genever gin), Maitrank (a seasonal wine from the Arlon region made from sweet woodruff flowers macerated in Moselle wine with, among other things, slices of oranges), Eau de Villée (a lemon liqueur made in the Distillerie de Biercée, gin, rum or even The Belgian Owl whisky produced in the Province of Liège…
