Description

The La Bri estate is nestled in the imposing amphitheatre of the Franschhoek valley and is one of the oldest Huguenot allocated farms in the area; it was one of the first nine farms granted to members of the main group of Huguenots who had sought sanctuary in the Cape back in 1688. Moving forward to 2007, a new era dawned for La Bri as the vineyards were gradually replanted, and a new 120 tonne boutique wine cellar was built.

The labels were redesigned to feature indigenous Cape flowers and herbs, playing on the symbiotic relationship between wine and fynbos (a type of local flora that occurs solely on the southern tip of Africa), so apparent in the Cape. As such, each La Bri wine now has its own Cape flower on the label, with the exception of the Syrah, which features herbs, to reflect its herbaceous nature.

La Bri consists of 15 hectares of vineyards that grow in diverse soil types from sandy loam to deep and rich alluvial soils. The terroir in the upper reaches of the Valley offers sufficient diversity in both the climate and soil, allowing for a range of grape varieties to be grown from Cabernet Sauvignon to Viognier. This, when combined with meticulous vineyard management practices and artisanal winemaking, produces outstanding wines, allowing the Franschhoek Valley wines to compete with some of the best wines that South Africa has to offer.
