Allée Bleue - Tradition meets Modernity

It was as early as the 17th century when French settlers discovered the fertile slopes in the Franschhoek Valley and planted the first vines at Allée Bleue. Today, the estate manages the balancing act between its long tradition and modern times: in the restructured wine cellar, outstanding wines such as the red wine L’ Amour Toujours or the white wine Isabeau are created.

Van Zyl du Toit

Van Zyl du Toit was born into a family of winemakers in Swartland and has basically spent his childhood in the wine cellar of his father. His path into the wine industry was therefore almost predestined. At Simonsig, Van Zyl du Toit was responsible for the sparkling wine production as head winemaker before he came to Allée Bleue in 2009. He defines his wines with his energy, his enthusiasm and his skills and gives them a clear direction – numerous awards are the fruit of his labour. He is supported by an excellent team and a state-of-the-art wine cellar. Hence, the best conditions to produce great wines. An eye for details is the key for Van Zyl du Toit as every seeming triviality, whether at the vineyard or in the cellar, can have a large impact on the finished wine in the bottle.

Allée Bleue with a Long Tradition

The Allée Bleue winery has been in existence for over 300 years and can look back to a long and successful tradition. As early as the 17th century, French settlers discovered the fertile slopes in the Franschhoek area and planted the first vines. In the 21st century, the winemakers revived this tradition. The wine cellar has been completely renovated and offers modern cellar technology. As every other winery in South Africa, Allée Bleue thrives or fails based on its employees. Therefore, the owners did not only invest in the infrastructure, but assembled an excellent team at the vineyard. The most renowned wine is probably the Allée Bleue L’ Amour Toujours.

Allée Bleue Wine with Typical Features

Allée Bleue produces excellent white wine (ChardonnayChenin Blanc) as well as red wine (Cabernet SauvignonPinotage). The climate of the Franschhoek Valley comes to the fore in the fruity and fresh white wines, while the red wines, often aged in oak, inspire with spicy aromas and mineral undertones. But the portfolio also includes a beautiful rosé. The Allée Bleue winery produces different labels with the Estate Collection and the Reserve Collection. With the two so-called "flagship" wines Isabeau and L'Amour Toujours, the winemakers at Allée Bleue impressively show what is feasible in South Africa. Both the white and the red wines convince critics and wine lovers alike.

Allée Bleue with Artistic Ambitions

Allée Bleue stands for great wine from South Africa. But the winery itself also has a lot to offer. The beautiful architecture combined with the breathtaking landscape make the estate a popular destination. In summer, visitors to Allée Bleue can relax in the picturesque surroundings with a picnic and choose between three different picnic options. In the bistro, you can have a leisurely breakfast or a bite to eat for lunch. A visit to the wine estate in Franschhoek offers many possibilities. Allée Bleue manages the balancing act between the beautiful landscape, the long tradition and the departure into the 21st century.
