Such a lovely afternoon tasting wine with the most beautiful view. Definitely a holiday highlight. Lynne made it particularly great with her friendly service and excellent knowledge. She taught us everything we wanted to know. Would 100% recommend.

Enjoyed a second wedding at Vrede en Lust and love the wedding/event area. It has spectacular views over the mountains and has fairy lights above the tables which make it magical. The food was superb. The mushroom pâté, the pea and mint soup, the most delicious ravioli and a heavenly pavlova. My mouth waters thinking about this!

The wine-tasting is very professionally conducted in a friendly manner, and it is FREE (for groups of 4 or less). The cheese platter is definitely worth having with tasting, with inclusions such as fig pate and beetroot jam.

As part of a day trip, Vrede & Lust was our last stop and we were very hot and bothered. What a breath of fresh air! The girls - all dressed in red - were as pleasant as if they have not been pouring wine all day. Our server was super friendly and explained the wines to us (many farms... More
