On the slopes of the Dassenberg mountains, Leeu Estates is a 68-hectare wine farm home to Mullineux & Leeu Family Wines. Owned by Indian entrepreneur Analjit Singh, this estate is one of three farms he acquired after a serendipitous visit to Franschhoek in 2010, during which he “instantly and instinctively knew this was it!”. 

We can see why...

What’s on offer

  • Food Le chêne, overseen by chef Darren Badenhorst, serves a varied and proudly South African menu underpinned by rigorous French technique. The contemporary interiors are pared-back and sophisticated, and there’s a deck with heavenly views of the garden, vineyard and mountain.
    New to the estate is La Petite Colombe, which moved from its corner at Le Quartier Français. Here, diners can expect the same level of exemplary fine-dining finesse as its Constantia counterpart, La Colombe. For those seeking a light meal and drinks, head to the bar.
  • Wine Designed by acclaimed Spanish Architect, Tomeu Esteva, the estate’s Wine Studio is a suitably beautiful space in which to appreciate the estate’s fine wines, produced by Chris & Andrea Mullineux. The knowledgeable staff will guide you through tastings of both the Swartland and Franschhoek wineries.
  • Stay Leeu Estates encompasses various luxury accommodation options, including six classically styled rooms within the immaculately restored Manor House, and cottages around the estate with sublime views of the surrounding vineyards, gardens and fynbos beyond.
