Sparkling Wine from Belgium - Cuvée Seigneur RuffusBelgium may not spring to mind when you think of wines, particularly of the sparkling variety. But a small vineyard in Wallonia is producing some world-class bubbles.
Domaine de Agaises has been winning awards for its signature Cuvée Seigneur Ruffus and people are taking notice. It can been hard to get your hands on a bottle if you don't order in advance.
If you are visiting Belgium you have a couple of options to sip a glass of Belgian bubbly. The first is to visit the Domaine itself. It's not open to the public all the time. But there are frequent 'Open Door' days.
The second option is to visit Mig's World Wine shop in Brussels (Chaussée de Charleroi, 43), which normally stocks bottles of Cuvée Seigneur Ruffus. You can find a variety of other Belgian tipples for sale here, as well as wonderful wines from around the world.
