Laborie Wine Estate

Tucked beneath the Paarl Mountain lies Laborie, a wine estate steeped in history in the heart of Paarl. The estate boasts a variety of things to do and enjoy, not to mention the best view in town of the Paarl Mountain! Take a stroll up the Avenue and you’ll find Stoep, the estate’s bistro-style restaurant that overlooks the gorgeous surrounding vineyards and mountains. Open daily, the restaurant serves delicious breakfast, lunch, and dinner from Wednesdays to Saturdays with a focus on local, seasonal, and sustainable produce. Stoep products, such as freshly made pasta, sweet treats and frozen meals, are available for guests to purchase at the Estate’s Farm Grocer. The Farm Grocer strives to support local businesses and stocks fresh bread, meat, cheese, homeware and wine. Being a wine farm, wine tasting is also available in the historic Manor House where one can taste the very best of Laborie wines accompanied by a cheese or charcuterie platter.
