Three generations of the Bacquaert family formed part of the foundation of our wine estate. It all started with grandfather Jean who managed to get his hands on the first parcels of land. Halfway through the last century, he acquired some land on the beautiful sloping hills between the Rodeberg and the Zwarteberg. Father Yves, an ambitious wine and drinks merchant, saw his entrepreneurial spirit continued in his son Martin. He inspired him above all with the idea of making his own wine. Viticulturist and business manager Martin was, in other words, destined to 'do something with wines’.
