Laborie Wine Farm is a magical estate nestled in Paarl in the Cape Winelands. Founded by a Huguenot settler in 1688, it was later transformed into a typical Cape-Dutch farm. Today it has been lovingly restored by KWV after they acquired it in 1971, and is the perfect place to stop for lunch and a glass of wine if you are exploring the Paarl winelands or central Paarl itself.
The spacious and stylish Laborie Restaurant and terrace is situated on the wine estate, and offers a relaxed atmosphere with an informal and laidback dining experience. Lunches are served between 10h30 and 17h00 and the Gourmet Dinner Menu, comprising of four courses, is available later in the evening. The restaurant is also available for weddings and functions and can accommodate up to 120 people.
Close to 20% of South Africa's annual wine production originates from the Paarl region and many of the estates in the region offer frequent tastings, tours and sales (although some are by arrangement only). Tastings are offered in an intimate tasting room in winter on out on the balcony in summer. Picnics and cheese platters can also be served during summer, provided you book in advance. Visitors can overnight in the tranquil guest house and enjoy a delectable meal at Harvest at Laborie.
