Brussels has been put on the Belgian wine map after a self-described "urban winery" has rolled out its first vat of organic, Brussels-made wine.

Gudule is the first urban wine cellar in Belgium, operating out of an entrepreneurial hub located in the heart of the city's northern, industrial neighbourhood of Tour & Taxis.

"In Belgium, wine is either Walloon or Flemish," Thierry Lejeune of Gudule told BX1, referring to the regionalised agricultural policies of Belgium.

"Brussels doesn't exist in the Belgian wine map as a producer, although it is very present as a consumer," he added.

Named after the Belgian capital's patron saint, Saint-Gudula, the winery imports its grapes from vineyards across Europe into the Belgian capital, where it then carries out the entire wine-making process.

The first vat contains five organic wines in total two red, two white and one rosé.
