The finger prints on the bottle

Chateau Amsterdam is an urban winery, but most of all a modern family company. Founded by father and son, since 2017. Chateau produces modern and classic wines together with new tastes in the realm of wine. By transporting the grapes from European vineyards from our European farmers to our capital city, we’re able to create the wines we like to create in the city of Amsterdam for the city of Amsterdam.

Bring the mountain to Moses

When Chateau’s founder, Remy, came home from school at the age of fifteen, there were 3 concealed bottles of wine on the dining table next to a tasting sheet with his name on it. That’s where it all started. Remy’s love for winemaking started at a tender age due to his father Jos. First Remy found an old factory located at the shore of the IJ canal in Amsterdam. Not long after his father Jos started an apprenticeship at one of the best-known Italian winemakers (Alois Lageder). The first 6000 wines were bottled, labeled and corked in 2017. The rest is history.

The team behind the wine

A group of pioneers, with roots in the south of our country, found their way to Amsterdam, just like our grapes. Some bound by blood, others bound by wine but all working together as one family using the same four company values:

  • Rush Slowly: be attentive, dare to make decisions, be patience
  • Be decisive with an open heart: be honest about your intentions and honest
  • On Seaday it is possible: pioneering is improvising; Don’t be discouraged, but keep playing and dare to ask others to work together
  • We are a family; there is a place for everyone,  vulnerability is celebrated and our product is designed for more than one generation

Everyday at Chateau we reach to do better and work harder for a more sustainable world. We are deeply impressed by the Netflix documentary ‘Our Planet‘ and we are gratefully inspired by Sir David Attenborough for a more sustainable world.

Favorite wine: Pretty Pet Nat!

Fine bubbles, citrus and refreshing, but due to the fermentation in the bottle also a small hint of ciders and some wild.

Favorite wine: The fat lady sings

A delicious fatty chardonnay with excentric tastes, not a standard chardonnay, but something special, totally like Chateau.
