HISTORY

L’Avenir estate was founded by Mauritian-born, Marc Wiehe, in 1992. In tribute to the celebrated terroir of the historical Stellenbosch wine region

TERROIR

The majority of our vineyards have reached full maturity, resulting in naturally limited yields of the highest quality grapes. We keep our focus on the vineyards, in order to produce premium quality grapes. Based at the foothills of the Simonsberg mountain range within an area referred to as the “Golden Triangle” of wine. Our soil types are varied and include Glenrosa, which is considered to be one of the Cape’s best soil configurations for the vine. A vein of disintegrated shale, which is particularly suited to Pinotage vines, runs through the property. The Indian Ocean is less than 13 miles away, and gentle afternoon sea-breezes drift over the farm and exert a cooling influence gainst the Cape sun.

PEOPLE

L’Avenir focuses on producing elegant wines which showcase their unique setting. This was the vision of the founder, Mauritian-borne, former sugar trader Marc Wiehe and the legendary winemaker Francois Naude Snr continues this vision.
