"Luxembourg, a small country of great wines"
Charles de Gaulle
For 2 millennia the valley of the River Moselle has given its sun-drenched slopes to the benefit of impassioned winegrowers. Luxembourg's vineyards extend for 42 kilometres, from Schengen to Wasserbillig, and are for the most part between 300 and 400 metres wide, formed of chalk soil to the north and clay loam to the south. Over the centuries they have grown many noble varieties, producing wines with a delicate freshness and an elegant finesse, not to mention the sparkling wines and renowned crémants.
