Meerendal is one of only a handful of brands in South Africa with the proud tradition of 50 years since bottling our first vintage Pinotage in 1969. We celebrated this important historical occasion by hosting a very special tasting on the Estate.
This vertical tasting started with the very first Meerendal Pinotage that was bottled in 1969, following on from this were the 1974, 1978, 1982, 1996 vintages and ended with The Flagship Heritage Block Pinotage made for the first time in 2005, when the vineyard was 50 years old.
