Le Bonheur

Hand picked by us, hand picked by you

Le Bonheur, which means happiness, dates back to the 1790’s.

Hand sorting the grapes at Le Bonheur has remained our tradition. This is one of the reasons why Le Bonheur’s wines are so acclaimed both locally and internationally, and why they consistently receive prestigious awards in top wine competitions across the globe.

This 163-hectare estate is situated along the slopes of the Klapmuts Hill in the northern reaches of the Simonsberg ward.

Here winemaker Sakkie Kotzé ensures that, like at the chateaus in France, grapes are still hand-picked and sorted, to create a hand picked wine for the wine connoisseurs.
