Or Bakkersboschgroeve. A small quarry located in Limburg, the Netherlands. On top of the quarry, there is a wine house/liquor store. This quarry is associated with wine since the early 1900s. First, a group of fathers opened a shop at this location, later they sold it. After the fathers, another company used the location and sold it later to the Wine house Sauter. Sauter still uses the quarry as a wine cellar today and use the location as their headquarters.
I’ll take you on a quick tour. Visited the place two times. The first time I wanted to take photographs, I forgot my sd card, so I wasn’t able to shoot pictures that day, which was a good thing because usually, the first impression needs to settle down in my head. The second time, I had everything with me and was able to shoot some nice pictures.
Usually, we light paint the quarry ourselves, but the Bakkerboschquarry has already light installed. It made it a bit more difficult to photograph ‘cause I had to watch the light and postprocessing wasn’t that easy. But the result was better than expected.
It’s a small quarry compared to what we are used too, but you can spend some time here looking at the winy underground landscapes.
To access the cellar, you have to take an elevator one floor down. Wine bottles can be seen everywhere as they are stored there.
