Sint Catharinadal

Blend 2018


Zippy Apricot & Lime

A fresh blend of Auxerrois, Pinot Blanc, and Pinot Gris from the oldest female monastery in the Netherlands. The 2018 blend has a wonderful citrus notes, a hint of marzapan, and stone fruits. One of our bestsellers, we enjoy this wine with our summer meals and appreciate its versatility.

Undeterred by declining church participation, the sisters planted a vineyard in 2014 in order to generate income for the preservation of the monastery. Then they set about converting their old cowshed into a winery before the completion of the first harvest in 2017.  Learn more
