Nestled within a natural amphitheater shaped by the vertical cliffs of the spectacular Simonsberg Mountain, lies the Vrede en Lust wine estate. The history of Vrede en Lust Estate is a story of passion, vision and resurrection, which goes as far back as 1688, when Flemish merchant Jacques de Savoye arrived at the Cape with the French Huguenots. Today this breathtakingly modern wine farm, a family owned and managed wine business, is a tribute to its noble roots and continues to build on over 320 years of history and heritage.

Dining: At the heart of LUST Bistro & Bakery is a hearth: the traditional, wood-fired brick oven where the chef conjures up authentic artisan breads and all manner of delectable daily fare. The food is honest, abundant and delicious with an emphasis on simplicity and seasonal ingredients. The décor is modern and earthy, industrial loft meets farmhouse kitchen. Choose from the à la carte menu or daily blackboard specials – and don’t forget to pick up something fresh from the bakery counter to take home.

Activities: Garden Walk, Daily Cellar Tours, Lindt Chocolate Pairing (pre-booked), Dalewood Cheese Pairing (pre-booked)
