On the 4th of May 2024 we will host our 5th event on the Run The Vines calendar for the 2024 Series at the astounding Vrede en Lust Wine Estate.

Vrede en Lust is nestled at the foothills of the Simonsberg in South Africa’s most celebrated Franschhoek wine valley. The history of the farm dates back to 1688 and discloses a story of vision, passion and pride.
