Allèe Bleue Estate

This historical estate is nestled at the foot of the majestic Drakenstein Mountains in the Franschhoek Valley. The scenic estate, with its Cape Dutch ambience is not only a perfect function venue but a working farm with amazing fresh produce including herbs, olives, fruit and award winning wines. Established in 1690 under the name “Mere Rust”, Allée Bleue has been brought back to life with great dedication and attention to detail by the current owners, Mr. and Mrs. Dauphin.  The result is a fascinating combination of typical South African farming tradition, contemporary lifestyle, art and nature.

An intimate understanding of our terroir, careful nurturing of our vineyards and meticulous care taken in our cellar create the magic that is Allée Bleue wines.  This uncompromising approach produces a range of internationally award-winning wines with distinct character that was carefully crafted to create the perfect drinking experience.
