This 163-hectare estate with the optimistic name of Le Bonheur ("Happiness"), is situated along the slopes of the Klapmuts Hill in the Stellenbosch district.
The history of the estate dates back to the late 18th century and the homestead, built in the H-shaped Cape Dutch style, is a classic example of the architecture of the time.
Today, the stately manor house, complete with its original doors and floors, has again been painted in subtle ice-cream hues typical of the day.
Le Bonheur has an enviable terroir. Four years of painstaking labour went into perfecting the structure and composition of the soil before entrusting the vines to it. The improvement and restructuring of Le Bonheur's soils have been modelled on those of the famed vineyards of France.
