Lourensford Estate, established in the year 1700 and once part of Willem Adriaan van der Stel’s Vergelegen, is arguably one of the most beautiful wine estates in the world. Steeped in history and heritage, the estate also boasts an ultra-modern winery utilising technology unique in the Southern Hemisphere. The magnificent soils and diverse micro-climates create the ideal terroir for world-beating wines. Lourensford is fast-becoming one of the sought after wine estates in South Africa, with over 300 hectares of vines already planted.
The Lourensford Fly-fishing Club offers a broad spectrum of fishing, from a 25ha dam, 6 km river fishing and stocked spring water pools. Membership (at a cost of R2250 + VAT pa) gives you access throughout the year via bookings. You get 1 free fish per month and you can bring 1 angling friend per month.
