Our winemaker & her philosophy
After finishing her studies at Elsenburg Agricultural College in 1994, Liza Goodwin was appointed as winemaker at Meerendal Wine Estate in 1998.
Making her the first female winemaker in Durbanville.
“I believe that wine should encapsulate a place and time. As a product it doesn’t play by the same rules as mass-produced consumer goods, it’s always different from year to year, place to place. My intent is to make the best and most interesting wines from Meerendal’s vineyards with a willingness to work with Mother Nature rather than against her.”
