A unique place in an absolutely heavenly setting

As one of the oldest vineyards in the Cape, the ALLÉE BLEUE Estate has not only witnessed an eventful past but is also set to witness a challenging future.

It lies in a picturesque location in the Franschhoek Valley - an area with a distinct French influence - and offers a breathtaking view of the Drakenstein mountain range. With its snow-white, thatched buildings surrounded by dense lavender bushes, the extensive estate stands proudly in the middle of large fields of herbs and expansive meadows.

The ideal place for happy times

With ALLÉE BLEUE, the Dauphin family has discovered a wonderfully happy place which will touch the heart of anyone who visits. The historical estate has been brought back to life with great dedication and attention to detail. The result is a fascinating combination of the typical South African farming tradition and contemporary lifestyle as well as art and nature.

The Dauphin's would like to give everyone the opportunity to experience the picturesque magic of this uniquely beautiful location and to share in its great wealth of products.

A family with a passion for South Africa

Husband and wife entrepreneurs Friedrich-Wilhelm and Elke Dauphin have already achieved great success on the international market with their stylish, high-quality office furniture and have been passionate about South Africa for many decades now.

The couple did not have to think twice when they were offered the ALLÉE BLEUE Estate in this outstandingly beautiful setting. The Dauphin's themselves have taken great pains to restore ALLÉE BLEUE to its former glory. They made the decision to resume winegrowing on the site after a break of 150 years. The wines from the estate complement the herbs and fruits which are very much in demand on the South African market and beyond. Although they were newcomers at first, they have since gone on to become passionate winegrowers.
