Wine information
L’Avenir’s rich history dates back to the late 1600s, when the estate was one of the very first sites identified for grape growing by the Cape’s earliest European settlers. The estate was renamed L’Avenir in 1992 by Mark Wiehe, a Mauritian businessman, who left a career of trading sugar in London to purchase the farm. In 2005, the estate was acquired by Michel Laroche, the owner of the well-known Chablis property, Maison Laroche. And in 2012, it joined Advini, the reputed wine group owned by the JeanJean family of France. L'Avenir does not only make great wine, they are also a company that loves to give back. In 2004, they established The Pebbles Project, an initiative that provides onsite housing for their workers as well as education, childcare and heathcare. Far & Near is the entry-level range of L’Avenir, but there is nothing entry-level about this. Clean citrus fruits, quince, and bouncy acidity make this a real crowd pleaser.

Robin says "Far & Near is made with the same care as L'Avenir's main estate wines but produced in a user-friendly, fruit forward style. The 2018 Chenin Blanc has great appeal that offers a more vinous touch."
