Sourced from only the finest grapes from the Western Cape region, our Laborie wines are crafted with excellence. Now, three centuries later, Laborie’s efforts have resulted in a wide range of wines that is generous in the quality they offer for everyday enjoyment.
Treasure moments of togetherness.Live a joyous life.

In 1691, the Farm Laborie was granted to French Huguenot Isaac Taillefert. Already the owner of the neighbouring Picardie, Taillefert placed Laborie in his son Jean’s name. Together, they set about clearing the bush and planting vines, and within seven years, were producing drinkable wine. It was the opinion of a Frenchman, Leguat, who visited the Cape in 1698, that their wine was “the best in the colony and similar to our small wines of Champagne”.

With their knowledge of French viticultural techniques, the Taillefert family laid a solid foundation of vineyards and outstanding wine production evident, over three hundred years later, in Laborie’s wines of distinction.

Steeped in history, dating back to 1691, and tucked beneath the foothills of the majestic Paarl Rock, Laborie has proudly stood the test of time. This heritage wine estate combines old-world charm with modern facilities. With wide open spaces and beautiful scenery you can truly immerse yourself in the heart of the Cape Winelands.
