During the last 329 years, the estate had many ups and downs with various owners. It is believed that the first Sunday trading in the Cape colony, took place at Vrede en Lust, due to the first protestant church which was built on the estate. Vrede en Lust had always been a wine farm and current vineyards reflect the plantings of 1745.
On 3 October 1996 a brand-new era was beckoning in the history of this extraordinary farm, Vrede en Lust Estate, when the Buys family became the new owners.
