We visit Vrede en Lust every time we visit South Africa and are never disappointed with the service, knowledge of the wines and the wines. This time we shipped wine home directly and it was pretty affordable.

Wonderful wines. Loved the White Mischief. Lynn was very knowledgeable and helpful. The view from the patio was magnificent and the cheese platter was a perfect accompaniment to the tasting. Enjoyed the background music. A lovely venue for a wedding.

What an incredible experience!!! This has to be the BEST wine estate, wine escape and wine experience. From the moment you walk down that walkway to the spectacular mountains and the winery you are home!! Everyone is so welcoming and well educate on the wines, not to mention the excellent selling skills!! Thank you once again for a breath-taking experience!!
