Collection: Vrede en Lust

Vrede en Lust's origins date back to 1688 when the then Governor of the Cape allocated this 66ha farm to the Flemish merchant, Jacques de Savoye, who fled Europe due to religious persecution.

During the last 3 centuries, the estate had many ups and downs with its various owners. It is believed that the first Sunday trading in the Cape colony, took place at Vrede en Lust, due to the first Protestant church which was built on the estate.

Vrede en Lust had always been a wine farm and current vineyards reflect the plantings of 1745.

On 3 October 1996 a brand-new era was beckoning in the history of this extraordinary farm, Vrede en Lust Estate, when the Buys family became the new owners.
