An oasis of biodiversity
The vineyard reaches 4 ha over 3 different locations. 2 ha on sandy loam and 2 on clay and limestone. Every plot produces one field blend and is planted with between 4 and 8 different grape varieties. All varieties are more or less resistant to fungal diseases. At Lijsternest, the ecological aspect always comes prior the perception of quality.
We planted every vineyard by hand, from zero, starting in 2013 and finished plantation in 2018. The first production was in 2015, and we hope to produce 20.000 bottles in 2022.
