A New Generation of Winemakers

Determination, patience, a love for people. And the most important thing is passion, because if you love what you do it doesn’t feel like work! I feel winemaking is more an art than science, and art is meant to be enjoyed and appreciated after all.

On 3 October 1996, a brand-new era was beckoning in the history of Vrede en Lust wine estate, when the Buys family became the new owners. With this ownership came a vision of resurrection and now, 20 years on, we are celebrating the sweet taste of our wine success.



Pinot Noir (Elgin)

Ruby red colour with hints of cranberry, mulberry and a touch of tomato leaf on the nose – typical of cooler climate wines. Well ripened tannins with a hint of oak and a refined finish.
