Stay the Winelands


Own your terroir.

To make exceptional wine, you need excellent grapes. This journey to greatness starts in the soils the vines are planted in. At Vrede en Lust we choose to make wines from grapes off our own vineyards that are grown in the best regions in South Africa. To build layers of complexity, the same grape cultivar is planted in multiple soil types and then harvested at different times during the season.

One of the key factors contributing to our success is our passionate team in the cellar and vineyards, led by Karlin and Annette. Karlin, our Cellar Master, expertly crafts our wines using only the highest quality grapes hand-picked from each of our farms, and utilizing the finest French oak barrels in the process. Annette, is our head viticulturist and excels at managing over 90 ha of vineyards, both the Vrede en Lust, Simondium Vineyards and Casey's Ridge in Elgin's vineyards, delivering only the highest quality grapes.

All is revealed in the glass. Savour it.

We offer an exquisite selection of wines that showcase the perfect harmony between two climates, revealing the unique terroir of the Simonsberg and Elgin regions.
