Wine information
With a history dating back to the 1700s, Le Bonheur Wine Estate epitomises the rich heritage of Stellenbosch. Historically “Le Bonheur” (meaning happiness) was a resting place for travellers and traders, offering lush green surroundings and natural spring waters. It is situated along the slopes of the Klapmuts Hill in the northern reaches of the Simonsberg Mountain, in the Stellenbosch Wine of Origin district. "Klapmuts" is the old Dutch word for the 18th century cocked hat that folded away into the saddle back pocket and, indeed, when observed from a distance, the hill resembles such a hat.Today the estate retains its sense of place, timeless setting and rich heritage and has become the sister property to L'Avenir Estate. This Bordeaux blend opens with lashings of raspberry and black plum with some smoky tobacco notes. The palate is full-bodied but with elegance and silky tannins.

Robin says "Part of the Family Crest series, The Trading Post is a Bordeaux blend but with a South African spirit. Named after the estate's trading post origins."
