Val de View Vineyards

Our Vision

“Becoming one of South Africa’s most desired wine brands producing consistent premium quality wines from one of the most comprehensive range of Rhone varietals available locally having a winemaking philosophy with a natural approach of minimal interference.”

Our Story

Val de Vie Estate is synonymous with the bountiful offering that is brought forth by the picturesque Paarl-Franschhoek Valley. This magnificent region – or The Valley of Life as we call it – is our inspiration for producing wines of the highest quality.

The ideal climate and blend of cool and warm winds have played a prominent role in the production of wines since the 1600s when French Huguenot descendants brought their sound viticulture knowledge to the region. The Val de Vie collection consists of five sophisticated, timeless blends. Our Polo Club range has three different blends and is a perfect match for any palate.

The L‘Huguenot Venue & Vinoteque

The L‘Huguenot Venue & Vinoteque at Val de Vie Estate welcomes visitors to a place where old-world and new-world trends are in perfect harmony.  After centuries of pioneering and constant development, the wine cellar and 25 hectares of vineyards on Val de Vie Estate were acquired by the Chinese distribution company, Perfect China, in 2013, and the property is now the proud home of L’Huguenot Vineyards. 

Today, guests and residents can choose from a variety of outstanding function venues to suit their exact requirements in terms of style and size – all offering splendid views of the surrounding historic vineyards. Each facility, including The Vineyard Garden Venue, The Tasting Room and The Vinoteque, affords guests a charm of its own and can be hired separately, to suit requirements to the finest detail.  In the 100-ton wine cellar the selective Val de Vie and Polo Club wines are produced. These wines, together with a range of other highly rated brands are available exclusively to Val de Vie Estate residents and are obtainable from the Vinoteque Wine-list in The Tasting Room.
