Our rating: 7/10
The wine has a bit of a green character. We taste red fruits and herbaceous flavours like liquorice, rosemary and blackcurrant and pronounced smoky flavours of oak. We recommend decanting the wine, this will certainly improve the taste. After being opened for some time, the wine still has green notes of bitterness and green pepper, but the oaky flavours are less pronounced. We suspect that the grapes have been picked too green and have not yet reached full maturity.

Land en Boschzigt
Our rating: 8/10
A beautifully made orange wine. We smell and taste dried yellow fruit, marmalade and a fine, smokey smell and taste of peat-fired whiskey. Nicely to combine with old cheese. This orange wine has been voted the best Orange wine in the Netherlands!
Unfortunately this year is already completely sold out..

Our rating: 8/10
The wine has pleasant aromas and flavours of yellow fruits and flowers. However, we doubt whether this wine can be called an Orange wine, given the very light color and scent and taste palate of yellow fruit and flowers. We would rather call it a nice white wine. To conclude, this is a good and well-made wine with a lot of fruit and nice acidity.

Wijndomein De Koen
Our rating: 7/10
A pleasantly surprising sparkling rosé wine! There is a nice palet of red fruit and blossoms in the nose. We taste a lot of red fruit and citrus: strawberries, redcurrants, rose hips and a hint of grapefruit and lemon. A delicate mousse. Enjoy it on a spring or summer afternoon. Don’t pair with food, just drink and enjoy. The bubbles vanish quite fast so pour another glass before both the sun and the bubbles are gone!

Aan de Breede Beek
Our rating: 7/10
We smell and taste flowers, yellow fruit, stone fruit and a little bitterness. The aftertaste is rather long but is mainly due to acidity, not so much due to fruity flavors. We believe that this wine is a bit overpriced, considering its quality. However, a nice white wine for every day.

Hoeve Nekum
Our rating: 7/10
Sweets, strawberries, redcurrants combined with hay and spices (thyme) in the nose. It is a mouthful of sweets, raisins and raspberries, lovey to drink on a sunny day. The wine however just misses that bit of spiciness to take on that overwhelmingly sweet red fruit.
