The vineyard

The history of Bois Marie does not date back to yesterday, it even goes back to the time of the Gauls. Abandoned during the Second World War, the winegrowing activity was revived in the 1960s by the architect Charles Legot. After his death, other enthusiasts took over to maintain and bring this heritage to life.

Organic conversion and much more!

Since September 2020, the vineyard, with about 1,500 vines, has taken a new direction with the Hanin family! The conversion to organic farming on the one hand, but also the challenge of making it a mainly red vineyard.

This project to take over the Huy vineyard is a continuation of Gudule, the first Urban Winery in Belgium, a project in which Didier is involved. This concept consists of buying the grapes and bringing them to the place of vinification, in this case Brussels. The grapes from Le Clos Bois Marie will therefore naturally find their way to Gudule.
