Lourensford Estate Range

This range is a true expression of Estate and Terroir. These vineyards are surrounded by spectacular mountains overlooking False Bay – sea breezes and fresh air cool down summer temperatures by up to five degrees Celsius. Rainfall figures can be hign and an eager South Easter breeze indicates a traditional European-type Terroir.

Limited Release

The Limited Release range, whilst aiming for consistency in range, is fundamentally a “mark of approval”, with wines only produced under this label if they reach the heights of taste and complexity. Each wine is produced in limited quantities only, and often sold on allocation to trusted friends and clients.

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.
