With its great balance of fruit and oak notes, the Vrede en Lust Boet Erasmus delights every red wine lover from the very first moment. The blend of Cabernet Sauvignon (47%), Merlot (40%), Malbec (7%), Petit Verdot (4%) and Cabernet Franc (2%) scents wonderfully of dark and red fruits, while aromas of tobacco and vanilla as well as earthy tones provide even more complexity. Full-bodied and fruity on the palate, the red wine lingers for a long time with its fine tannins. The Vrede en Lust Boet Erasmus matured for sixteen to eighteen months in French oak and is the flagship of the estate. Owners Dana and Etienne Buys dedicated their best red wine to their grandfather, who showed them the world of premium wines. Enjoy the elegant red wine blend pure, with a cheese platter or with dishes of dark meat or game.

Vrede en Lust – run by the Family Buys

Since 1996, the family Buys runs Vrede en Lust with a constantly growing success. The Buys are the 17th owner of the estate already, but it was them that have given the winery the required consistency and quality that have made it one of the most beautiful and interesting ones in the whole of South Africa. After an extensive renovation and conversion, Vrede en Lust can finally realise its full potential and has been doing exactly that for some years now. Susan Erasmus, one of the few female winemakers in South Africa, has managed for eleven years that Vrede en Lust is now a permanent part of the elite of South African wineries due to her perfectionist approach. Karlin Nel who has been Susan Erasmus’ assistant took over the position as head winemaker in the youthful age of 26 years in autumn 2017.

Breathtaking Location and emotional Wine

Vrede en Lust benefits from its breathtaking location in the Franschhoek valley. In the middle of the mighty mountains and the fantastic view along the valley, there are ideal conditions here for the cultivation of true premium wine. Every single time, the visitors of the estate are impressed by the sight which does constitute a part of the charm of Vrede en Lust. Additionally, many of the wines tell their own, little story, such as the Jess Rosé which is a grand, fresh rosé wine. It is named after the youngest daughter of the owner, Jessica Lee.

Vrede en Lust with fantastic Hospitality

Visitors of the yard regularly rave about the friendly, even cordial hospitality at Vrede en Lust.

With this combination of excellent premium wines, the breathtaking view and the high level of hospitality, Vrede en Lust manages to arouse emotions and happy memories in its guests and gourmets. There is no better testimony.
