In 1996, some 600 vines were planted on the southern slopes of the Monteberg and the Kemmelberg as a trial to see if
the region and its terroir were suitable for wine-growing. It quickly became clear that wine-making activities had a bright future in Heuvelland, so that the vineyard was expanded to a total of 5 hectares, containing some 23,000 plants. In 2009-2010, a further hectare was planted in three separate plots, followed by yet another hectare in 2011. As a result, the Monteberg Estate now has an impressive total of more than 10 hectares under vines, good for more than 48,000 individual plants. A soil rich in ironstone, a location protected by neighbouring woods to the north and well-drained south-facing slopes all help to ensure that this is ideal winegrowing land.
