Wine stroll: 'Living of the heavenly dew'

Did you know that St Peter’s Abbey was the centre of the Ghent wine trade in the Middle Ages? Monks grew grapes on the slope to the River Scheldt behind the abbey, and you can still find vines there today. The beautiful vineyard of yesteryear was recultivated in 1983, and each year, the guild of wine measurers uses the harvest to make fresh wine. This interactive stroll will stimulate all your senses, but, obviously, your taste buds most of all.

Languages - only available in Dutch
Duration - 2 hours
Number - maximum 20 people per guide
Price - € 176 per guide (including admission + glass of wine/grape juice)
Availability - from May to October
