Vrede en Lust


There was a time long before apartheid when South African wines were savored by Napoleon and Louis XVI. The vintages are reclaiming their global renown now that democracy (and a wave of new investment) has arrived. Before you leave, visit one of the many wineries south of Cape Town, which combine a healthy sampling of varietals with brunch at some of the region’s finest restaurants. One of many is Vrede en Lust in the Franschhoek Valley, which also offers accommodations in an inn dating from the late 1600s. Besides the tour, visitors can enjoy private wine tastings and a newly renovated thatched-roof restaurant, Cotage Fromage
