Vrede en Lust

Vrede en Lust is a boutique, family owned and managed winery.

We produce nearly 30,000 9L cases of wine annually, from the 700 tons of our own grapes crushed. The grapes are sourced from our 2 vineyards in the Simonsberg-Paarl wine ward, as well as from our Casey’s Ridge vineyard in much cooler Elgin. Etienne Buys manages the farming and viticultural aspects whilst Susan Erasmus and Ansonè Stoffberg manage the winemaking operations. The award winning Vrede en Lust wine range is made up of 4 distinct selections: Tier 1 which comprises Jess, Sarah and Red Lady; Tier 2 which includes our Caseys Ridge Elgin Sauvignon Blanc, White Mischief,  Mocholate Malbec, Syrah, Marguerite Chardonnay and our Viogniers; Tier 3, our top wines the Boet Erasmus and the Barrique;  the Artisan range which is made exclusively for our Wine Club members in limited quantities and this range changes annually.
