We hope to see many of you at our next events which will always aim to be SIMPLE but OUT OF THE BOX!
As promised, here are the answers to the different questions you were asked during our quiz:
The answers !
Wezembeek-Oppem has today 14,250 inhabitants. Between 1931 and 1958, you could find a railroad line at the very place of the Tram 39 tracks.
L’épicerie d’Ollie opened its doors during the 1st confinement on 12.03.2020 at the place of the former grocery store Camillou (Avenue d’Oppem 134, 1970 Wezembeek-Oppem). During the event, you could taste its delicious homemade madeleines. L’épicerie d’Ollie is a local grocery store that offers excellent quality products as well as a bakery space that is to die for!

By the way, how do you make rosé ? That’s the question you were asked by Wine& Freedom … Many of you fell into the trap because YES, there are 3 ways to make rosé:
- Method 1: Bleeding/Maceration. The wine macerates for 12 to 24 hours in a tank with the skin.
- Method 2: Direct pressing. The grapes are pressed directly with the skin, only the juice is recovered.
- Method 3: Blending (the most controversial method). Some countries mix red wine with white wine to obtain rosé (⇒ This technique only concerns countries outside France and most often those outside the European Union)
During your walk, you could take part in a NATURAL WINE tasting by Wine & Freedom. Why did Mathieu Tordeurs (the Grand Patron of the MOUNIER where their store is located) and Patrick Demaret give this name to their new project?
Because they advocate Natural Wines that bring us back to values of respect for the vine, for the essence of the fruit, for all-natural techniques: permaculture, horns of Composte, horses to plow, no pesticides, no insecticides, … Just the natural sulfite of the grape in the respect of what nature can offer us. No more, no less! In short, without using the complicated vocabulary of sommeliers, they just have a sick banana when a wine – full of fruit, tasty and spicy as desired – comes to line their palate and those of their customers!
By the way, Wine & Freedom have enjoyed your company so much last weekend that they decided to create an exclusive 10% discount special for you on your 1st purchase. Go to www.wineandfreedom.be and when you check out, enter this code: LESAMISDEWEZEM
