small foundation with a big impact

Louis Kat’s going-away present

Okhuysen celebrated its 145th anniversary on 10 June with an anniversary wine tasting event. During this event friends and relations could also thank and say goodbye to Louis Kat for all those wonderful years. After 45 years, he handed the beautiful wine business over to his son Xavier. With more than 2,000 connoisseurs and lovers of wine taking part, it was a great tasting party. That afternoon, Louis Kat received a silver medal from the Commodity Board of Wine. 

As a going-away present, Mr Kat had asked for people to donate to our foundation. When adding the donations on our bank account to those in the collecting-boxes, we reached an amazing total of €1,000! We would like to thank the Kat family and all the Okhuysen relations for this wonderful contribution.
