Val de Vie Wine & Polo Estate has a growing reputation for wines that celebrate South African terroir and the history of Southern France. Inspired by the wines from Châteauneuf-du-Pape, Martin Venter acquired the farm Kliprug in 2003 and renamed it Val de Vie. Since then the estate has replanted all its vineyards (15 different Rhône varietals), revamped the 1825 winery and started its quest to become one of the best producers of wines derived from traditional Rhone varietals. These include Clairette Blanche, Grenache blanc, Viognier, Marsanne, Roussanne, Ugni blanc and reds such as Petite Sirah, Cinsaut, Carignan, Grenache noir, Mourvedre and Syrah or Shiraz.
Val de Vie offers a standard range of wines as well as limited volume vintages that are sold exclusively through their mailing list. Make sure you subscribe now to be the first to know. You can also purchase wines on the estate’s website with your credit card or e-mail us with your order if you prefer to pay via EFT. We deliver across South Africa, door-to-door.
