Vrede en Lust – Magnificent View of the Mountains of Franschhoek

Vrede en Lust benefits from its breathtaking location in the Franschhoek Valley. Since 1996, the Buys family is running the Vrede en Lust estate, one of the most beautiful and most exciting in South Africa. Meanwhile, it has a firm place within the elite of South African wineries. Besides vineyards in Franschhoek, this estate has its own slopes and a farm in the Cool Climate region Elgin. This enables the winemaker team to choose between different terroirs and a selected stock of vines.

Karlin Nel

Karlin Nel was only 26 years old when in autumn 2017, she accepted the position as winemaker at Vrede en Lust and therefore followed the footsteps of her former boss Susan Erasmus. ‘I have always dreamed about making people happy, to see them celebrating, smiling, dancing and enjoying life’, Karlin says. When she discovered the magic of wine, she had found the right means to fulfil this dream – the only thing she had to do was to learn this wonderful trade. She did have the time for that during her time as assistant of Susan Erasmus. Now, it is her being responsible for the wine cellar. Wine is Karlin’s passion – besides patience and determination the most important aspect of wine production.

Vrede en Lust's winemakers only minimally intervene in the natural ripening process and only selectively use cellar technology to enhance the typical features of the grape varieties. Each Vrede en Lust wine is a typical South African wine with its strong fruits and rich body.
