in Luxembourg.

Because of their relatively small areas for wine growing, the countries of Belgium, the Netherlands, and Luxembourg are usually combined to encompass a wine region called Be-ne-lux.

It's not a world-renowned wine region by any means (beer is the more famous libation throughout), but there are sections in each of these countries where good, and even exceptional wines can be found.

In Belgium the Charleroi, Hageland, Huy, Saing and Torgny regions grow Pinor Noir and Müller-Thurgau grapes. Close to the border with Netherlands is Belgium's most famous "château" and largest wine producer, Wijnkasteel Genoels-Elderen.

Luxembourg's section of the Mosel River Valley produces Elbling, Müller-Thurgau, Pinot Auxerrois, Pinot Blanc, Pinot Gris and Rivaner varieties. Luxembourg mainly produces dry white wines and sparkling wine under the designation Crémant.

Holland's Maastricht region produces Auxerrois, Müller-Thurgau, Optima and Riesling wines.
