This estate boasts picturesque scenery ranging from the majestic Drakenstein mountain range, vineyards and lavender with age old meadows. When visiting the farm, you will immediately experience an unmistakable French vibrancy, seeing that it is after all on the door step of Franschhoek’s historic town, which is South Africa’s own taste of France.
When this dynamic husband and wife team bought the farm, Friedrich-Wilhelm and Elke Dauphin, made very important investments. These two investments are the ingredients for a winning recipe. They employed staff and built a state of the art cellar for the production of award winning wines of South Africa.
Our white wines reflect refreshing, fruity characteristics true to the Franschhoek climate while our red wines being well matured in French oak reveals spicy aromas and earthy undertones as per the unique terrior of ALLÉE BLEUE.
Both red and white wines are currently produced in an entrée level (blue label) range; a white label (premier) range and our 3 flagship wines named Isabeau (white blend), L’Amour Toujours (red blend) and Pinotage.
