We did some wine tasting at De Wetshof and were utterly impressed by the knowledge and good service of Heinrich, who attended to us. What a lovely tasting room, and an escape from the heat outside.

Thanks, Heinrich for being such a great host and the overview of your amazing wines. Please do plan to spend less than two hours here. They have an enormous selection that deserves your time and respect (in not rushing).

We were very pleasantly surprised by our visit, the staff were very helpful and knowledgeable about the wines. Plenty of friendly staff, quick service and the wine tasting venue is very elegant. The grounds are stunning and perfect for a hot summers day.
