Paying homage to the famed terroir of Stellenbosch’s historic wine region, L’Avenir was only founded in 1992 by Mauritius native Marc Wiehe.
Under the oenological direction of winemakers Dirk Coetzee, Mattheus Thabo and Francois Conradie, the winery in the foothills of the Simonsberg in Stellenbosch produces now a well-endowed and award-winning wine portfolio of wines, distinguished by their unmistakably South African character with an elegant touch of French flair, with the two classic South African grape varieties Chenin Blanc and Pinotage, as the cornerstone of the South African wine industry, forming the main focus of L’Avenir.
Produced from a vineyard that was planted in 1971, L’Avenir Estate’s single vineyard Chenin Parcel selection in the vineyard and cellar, combined with minimum intervention winemaking results in a true masterpiece. This beautifully poised Chenin has lots of similarity with classic white Burgundy – a refined core, layers, freshness and a touch of appealing gunflint. As the estate says, “Authentic South African wines, with a touch of French flair.”
