LOURENSFORD WINE ESTATE

Welcome to Lourensford Estate. As one of the world’s most beautiful wine estates we offer a visual feast across 4 000 hectares of forest, fynbos, fruit orchards and vineyards, which rise up the slopes of the Helderberg Mountains, caressed by breezes off the Atlantic Ocean.

Established by Governor Willem Adriaan van der Stel in 1709, Lourensford has a proud history as a world class fruit farm and the wealth of glorious Proteas point to our rich floral heritage. Fortunately, the winemaking tradition was revived when well known Cape business man, Dr Christo Wiese purchased the Estate in 1998.

About Lourensford Wine Estate

The scenic splendour, winery, restaurant, coffee roastery, art gallery, outdoor markets and music concerts, as well as cycling and trail-running events ensure we are a popular tourist destination. No wonder our working farm is as popular with the public as it is with honey bees!
