A magnificent estate nestled in the fertile bowl of the Helderberg Mountains. Lourensford Estate, founded in 1700, a proud history joins with a dynamic new vision to create a giant among South African wine producers. Utilising unique technology and reaping the benefits of global expertise and optimal terroir, the wines of Lourensford are becoming well-recognised icons of true style and sophistication.
Lourensford is most certainly a “Jewel among the Winelands”. Apart from being a trendy venue for local and international events, the Estate embraces its natural charm – yielding an array of organic produce from honey to cheese and exquisite wines.
In 2011 Lourensford upgraded its venue and rebranded it as Laurent.
The newly renovated Laurent is an architectural masterpiece which stands royally overlooking the rolling lawns of Lourensford’s Polo Fields and extending its view from the majestic mountains to the nearby ocean. This can aptly be named the best of both worlds, and sets the scene to be a perfect backdrop for any exceptional occasion. A beautiful setting paves the way to a beautiful function, and you’ll find this to be true when you set foot on the glorious Estate where Cape Dutch grandeur combines with sleek and modern architecture.
Laurent presents a clean, yet elaborate canvas, complete with detailed crystal chandeliers and a veranda that overlooks the entire Estate. The Estate will assist you to design and organize a function of any style or type you desire - from special birthdays, to anniversaries, year-end functions and weddings, we shall fashion an inimitable and matchless occasion, tailor-made to your dreams.
