Well Preserved Times
Vrede en Lust wine farm boasts a remarkable history dating back to 1688 when it was first founded by Jacques du Savoye, a Flemish Merchant. The Governor of the Cape allocated his farm to De Savoye, who arrived in Table Bay on 26 April 1688 with the 160-feet oosterland.
Inspired by the idyllic surroundings and the vision of creating a flourishing vineyard, Savoye laid the foundation for what would become a lasting legacy. Over the centuries, the farm has been lovingly nurtured by subsequent generations, becoming an icon of winemaking in the Cape Winelands. Today, Vrede En Lust stands as a testament to the dedication and passion that has been poured into its vineyards and cellar, creating wines of exceptional quality and distinction.
The name Savoye pays homage to Jacques de Savoye, the visionary who first cultivated this enchanting land. It symbolizes a connection to the past while embracing the present, just as the restaurant combines historical Cape Dutch architecture with a modern flair.
