Lazy Days @ Laborie Wine Estate


The beautiful Laborie Wine Estate is situated in the picturesque town of Paarl with Paarl Rock as the backdrop. The huge granite rock is part of Paarl Mountain, meaning Pearl Mountain, and is the second largest granite rock in the world. The estate is welcoming to families with plenty of entertainment on the farm for all and they have ensured our little people are well cared for with activities to keep them busy while you visit this world-class Winelands destination.

The estates French history dates back to 1659 with the farm being granted to Frenchman Isaac Taillefert in 1691. Using their knowledge of French viticultural techniques the Taillefert family laid a solid foundation of vineyards and outstanding wine production that is evident today in Laborie’s wines of distinction. Laborie have an environmental approach to farming with a focus on sustainability. In 1977 the Manor House was declared a National Monument.


Taste at Laborie

The modern space, Taste at Laborie, is their renovated tasting room blending old world charm of the estate with today’s modern edge where the estates outstanding range of wines can be tasted . It is the perfect space for a relaxed afternoon of wine tasting, wine pairing, food and delicious pizza’s with beautiful views and kids are welcomed.

There are Four Wine Pairing options: Chocolate and Wine; Olives and Wine; Charcuterie and Wine; and Cheescake and MCC Sparkling Wine. Estate wines and Sparkling Wine are also available to order by the glass or bottle, and they serve juice for the kids. Kids can join in on the tasting experience with a grape juice tasting. On the menu they serve delicious wood-fired thin based Pizza’s and they have Gluten Free and Banting bases available. They also serve a selection of main meals, kids meals and desserts.


Kid’s tables are located on the veranda with colouring books and crayons, and they can order a doughball to play with. Across from the tasting veranda is a jungle gym, it is across a farm road, but still in sight of the tasting area so more suitable for competent climbers who do not need to be supervised, or parents can sit at the tables and chairs provided on the lawn area with the kids and enjoy their glass of wine. The vibe is relaxed, the service professional and friendly and the focus on a fun family experience at this fabulous Winelands destination.
