Great wine, spectacular views and a great afternoon awaits you at Vrede en Lust.

Wines are beautifully presented and paired by well informed staff. The views of the Franschoek mountains makes this an essential visit for anyone looking for a great wine tasting experience.

Ask for Christine - she's tops.

The day dawned rainy, windy and cold. We were scheduled for 3 wine tastings. A perfect day for lousy weather. The first tasting was just like the weather. Cold, damp and noisy. So many people tasting and talking we couldn't understand what was being said. At least the cheese was good. Naturally we didn't buy anything. Next stop, Vrede en Lust. We walked into an oasis of charm and wonderful wines. The experience was wonderful. We were greeted by the lovely Lynne who made us feel right At home. The wines were described beautifully and with such caring that we bought a case to send home to the US. It was the perfect stop. Would love to come back.

One of my most enjoyable wine tastings. Great wines, with awesome views over the vineyards, or on cold days you can enjoy their beautiful cellar wine tasting room. Friendly staff, amazing scenery, beautiful farm. A must visit. I'll be back

Top of mind for me to share with my guests when doing the Franschoek wine region. Service has always been exceptional and overall A GREAT wine tasting experience. On Sunday they were participating/ involved with a region wine festival and the place was busy, this still did not detract from providing me and my guests with outstanding service. Nicola the head of marketing kindly assisted with sourcing another option as their restaurant was about to close. Sincere thanks!
Great wines, view, staff, atmosphere and I truly missed the Malbec!!!

I would recommend going for a wine tasting any day. I went for the first time in July. The views are stunning; the wines are out of this world, and the service is top notch. I was very surprised by the white wines, as I don’t drink them. Caren asked me very nicely to try them and I loved the white wines, I even bought some to take home. Thanks for the lovely experience. I will definitely be back again :)
