About Meerendal Wine Estate
The home of world-class wines, proudly produced in South Africa.
The hills of Meerendal rise above the flat surrounding Durbanville landscape, with an almost endless variety of slopes, soil types and micro climates. This makes it possible to grow a wide range of classic cultivars with equal success.
Meerendal is a family run and owned vineyard with a history that started in 1714 when 60,000 vines were planted on the farm. For over 300 years, a tradition of producing quality wines has developed Meerendal into one of South Africa’s flagship wine estates.
