Lourensford Estate

Lourensford Estate, established in 1700 and once part of Willem Adriaan van der Stel's Vergelegen, is steeped in history and heritage.

This heritage is complimented by an ultra-modern winery utilising technology unique in the Southern Hemisphere.

Cellar

The new wine cellar, utilising technology unique in the Southern Hemisphere, presses more than 1500 tons of grapes.
Minimum handling and the use of gravity during the wine making process, forms the basis of quality wines.

Wine

In addition to a wide variety of both white and red wines, the estate also produces honey liqueur.
Lourensford Honey Liqueur is hand crafted from the top quality Blue Gum (Eucalyptus) honey.

The River Garden Terrace Deli & Eatery

The River Garden Terrace Deli and Eatery open for early bird breakfasts at 08h00 and serve lunch until 15h30.

The not so hungry can enjoy cakes and treats, bowls of home baked rusks or a scrumptious picnic under shaded old oak trees.

If you are just browsing, taste some award winning Healey's mature cheddar and have a chuckle at Frans Groenewald's art work on display against the walls.
