Our Vision

“Becoming one of South Africa’s most desired wine brands producing consistent premium quality wines from one of the most comprehensive range of Rhone varietals available locally having a winemaking philosophy with a natural approach of minimal interference.”


Val de Vie Estate is synonymous with the bountiful offering that is brought forth by the picturesque Paarl-Franschhoek Valley. This magnificent region – or The Valley of Life as we call it – is our inspiration for producing wines of the highest quality whilst paying homage to the sport of Kings.

The rich history of the land on which Val de Vie is situated dates back to the 1600s when French Huguenot descendant Abraham Andries le Roux brought his sound knowledge of viticulture to the region. The ideal climate and blend of cool and warm winds have since played a prominent role in the production of our award-winning wines.

The L’Huguenot Vinoteque is home to our exclusive Val de Vie and Polo Club range which is available at special prices. Our vintages are bottled in the 100-ton L’Huguenot cellar on the pristine Val de Vie Estate. The Val de Vie collection consists of three sophisticated, timeless blends. Our Polo Club range has four different blends and is a perfect match for any palate.

There are many occasions to enjoy a glass of wine and at Val de Vie these are based around celebrating life in a world class environment.

Fall in love with the Paarl-Franschhoek Valley and discover a Life worth Living.
