History

La Bri is one of the first nine Huguenot farms allocated in 1688.

Since its establishment in the late 17th century, when land in the Franschhoek valley was first allocated to Huguenots, La Bri has been a source of fine wines. An original homestead and outbuildings, surrounded by approximately twenty hectares under vines, beside a river, at the foot of the Franschhoek mountains, La Bri is a small, quiet, very beautiful place. Being there makes you want to do things better.

Our wines are elegant and classically structured representing the great terroir that we have on the La Bri farm. The red wines are matured for 20-22 months in french oak barrels - 1/3 new oak. The only exception is the new, exciting, co-fermented, Shiraz/Viognier blend that is matured for 12 months. The white wine in our range, the barrel-fermented Chardonnay is matured for 12 months. In addition to the barrel maturation, our wines are then further matured for a year in bottle at perfect storage conditions. Only once the wines are at optimum condition, are they released to the public.
