Every couple of months Koen and his friends have a Boys’ Weekend. This time Koen was the host, so I was very happy to escape the boys and stay with Hannah in Leuven for the weekend. We had beautiful, sunny weather and decided to explore the Belgian vineyards of Hageland.
We visited the heart of the Hagelandse wines – Wezemaal (Rotselaaar). They have a visitors center in a 19th century neo-gothic building where you can learn about the Hagelandse landscape and watch a video of the winemakers themselves sharing their passion. We didn’t realized you needed to make an appointment and were lucky we were able to join another group!
What really convinced us to head to Wezemaal were the walks in the vineyards. With such beautiful weather, we wanted to spend the day outside. Since we were walking we luckily thought to wear sneakers. What we expected to be a leisurely walk turned out to be an intense hike! So many hills and small paths! It was worth it for the beautiful scenery!
