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.
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.
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.
