Val de Vie Estate is widely recognised for its exceptional wines. The French Huguenots who settled in the valley during the second half of the seventeenth century brought with them their skills and passion for wine-making. In 1783, the original land – now known as Val de Vie – was granted to Huguenot descendant, Abraham Andries le Roux.
After centuries of pioneering and constant development, the wine cellar and 25 hectares of vineyards on Val de Vie were acquired by the Chinese distribution company, Perfect China, in 2013. Today it is the proud home of L’Huguenot Vineyards.
The region’s climate – with South Easter winds cooling the vineyards during hot summers, and moody North Westerlies bringing rain in winter – means that the climate is perfectly suited to the making of excellent wines. Over the years, Val de Vie has won numerous prestigious international wine awards, including ‘Best in its Class’ at the International Wine & Spirit Competition.
