Located in the heart of the Golden Triangle of winemaking in South Africa, L'Avenir offers a range of tastings of our award winning wines as well as picnics, light lunches & cheese boards.
The L’Avenir estate was founded by Mauritian-born, Marc Wiehe, in 1992 with ex-pharmacist Francois Naude by his side as winemaker.
By 2004, no Pinotage had been named as frequently as L’Avenir among the top ten in the annual Top Ten Pinotage Competition, achieving inclusion with seven out of eight vintages.
In September of 2005, French winemaker Chablisien Michel Laroche acquired the L’Avenir Estate, affording Laroche a rare opportunity to secure an operating property in the Cape’s most sought-after district. In 2010
Laroche merged with the JeanJean family and L’Avenir fell under the umbrella of the AdVini group.
In 2013 L’Avenir cemented their status as Pinotage wine icon by winning their eighth Absa Top 10 Pinotage Trophy.
Our offering includes 3 ranges of wines; from our easy-drinking Far & Near range, to our more sophisticated Provenance range, ending with our flagship Single Block wines. We specialize in Chenin Blanc & Pinotage on the farm & offer tailored tastings to showcase these varietals
