Val de Vie Estate produces exceptional wines derived from the acclaimed Rhône Chateau Neuf-du-Pape area and delightfully received a best in class gold medal for our 2007 Val de Vie Shiraz and again for our 1783 blend at the International Wine & Spirit Competition in 2009 and 2011. Eleven Rhône varietals are grown on the estate, a true celebration of French heritage and South African terroir.Tasting Room is open seven days a week, 10h00-16h00.
