Vrede en Lust Scales Down Offerings At The Estate Amid Covid-19 Pandemic

Due to the Covid-19 National Disaster, it has been decided to scale down the Vrede en Lust offering, for the time being, taking into account our workers and client safety, and the new regulations. All persons entering our premises will be required to adhere to strict sanitizing rules.

Lust Bistro and Bakery will be closed from 21 March 2020 to 8 April 2020. Prior to the 8th, we will reassess the situation, dependent on what new measures have been implemented or announced by the Government.

The Vrede en Lust tasting room will be open as per new Government regulations announced covering the selling and serving of alcohol products. Our popular Red Lady tastings will restart once the Covid-19 situation allows. Telephone and eStore orders will be handled by the Red Ladies. Free and subsidized delivery options are available to keep you stocked up!

For the safety of our staff and our clients, the offering in the tasting room will be limited to self-service wine tasting from our Vinoteque. Visitors to Vrede en Lust will have the ability to taste and learn about our eight most popular wines using our sophisticated, interactive Vinoteque.

Vrede en Lust Hospitality will scale down our offering, in line with client reservations. Clients that need to postpone reservations will be able to do so without any loss. We have already done this successfully for upcoming international weddings. Cancellations will be dealt with on an individual basis.

Some things cannot be postponed! We still need to finish the 2020 harvest, although our Winemaker has lost all her international interns. We wish them safe journeys home to Bolivia, Australia, and Germany. Our administration, logistics and sales teams are still at their posts ready to serve. Wine orders as per eStore and Wine Club will continue as per normal.

This is, unfortunately, a very fluid situation and our plans can change or be amended at short notice, dependent on Government actions and changing risks due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
