Vrede en Lust had the #1 rated red wine (Boet Erasmus), the #1 rated white wine (White Mischief) and the #1 rated Rosé (Jess) as rated by the attendees of South Africa's leading wine show RMB Winex in Oct 2018.

This is such a beautiful and well run town, with an abundance of wine and good food! Would highly recommend this for any visitors seeking a break from the hustle and bustle of city life. Or just want a romantic weekend away. It is on the pricey side, so be prepared to pay a bit for a meal and drinks. Otherwise have fun!
