These are the faces you will meet at the Meerendal Wine Academy. They will be your mentors during your stay at Meerendal Wine Estate and will happily answer any questions you may have. Everyone here is looking forward to meeting you and, hopefully, revealing some of the ‘behind the scenes’ and the beauty of wine making.
Lisa, our wine maker extraordinaire, will work with you in the vineyards and cellar, teaching you about our unique wines. She will take you through the basic steps of planning, testing and making wine from the vineyard to the cellar and eventually the bottle.
Bennie, a Cape Wine Master, will be teaching you about the beauty of wine and present to you lectures on "South African Wines" from the Cape Wine Academy. His vast knowledge of wines will tickle you brain cells and taste-buds during his informative lectures.
David will always be present in the tasting room and happy to teach you how to create a unique customer experience and share with you his knowledge of Meerendal’s wines.
Altus van Lill
Altus will be your guide in the vineyard and with great enthusiasm teach you about vineyard husbandry, preparing the wines for harvest and how to harvest the grapes.
