Curacao Winery – Cool but Hot
Wine cultivation in the Caribbean is a new project from two Dutchmen Roelof and Ilse Visscher who have been running a successful wine estate and winery in Holland for 15 years now. Three years ago the idea was born to develop a tropical wine-growing business in the southern-most and warmest part of the Kingdom of the Netherlands. After years of research early 2014 saw the first plants being planted at the Hato Plantation on the Caribbean island of Curacao. The project was financed by crowdfunding.
