My grand, grand... parants (12 generations ago) came frome the Spanish Netherlands, a region called Brabant and relocated becuase of religion. They brought vineyards with Gulden (money) and started to drink and sell wine. In 1890 my grandgrandfather sold wine to the gouverment in barrels. After the 2nd world war my father started selling botted wine at the winery. He had a big success in Germany and in midden 70 we sold more than 2000 cases in Seattle for 2 times. 1988 was an importend year for us Terry Theise visited us and bought also a lot.
