At the time of the new owner taking over, a strategy was formulated to implement Food and Wine on the Estate as its main focus, hence the slogan - “The Home of Food and Wine”. The Meerendal wines are elegant fruit driven wines ideally suited for matching the excellent cuisine that you can expect at the farm.
Visit the Meerendal Wine Estate and experience the flavour of a 300-year-old farm. Awaken your senses. Drink up the hue and viscosity. Know what it takes to make a noble wine and then savour the experience over lunch. Tutored tastings can be arranged and are hosted by either Liza Goodman, Meerendal's resident Cellar Master or renowned Cape Wine Master, Bennie Howard. The Meerendal heritage dates back to 1702 with some of the oldest Pinotage vineyards in South Africa. Today the vineyards yield a wide range of speciality and award winning wines prized for their Meerendal quality and flavour.
Meerendal is situated on the cool southeasterly slopes of the Tygerberg Hills near Durbanville, a mere fifteen kilometers from the cold Atlantic Ocean to the west and twenty minutes from the city center of Cape Town. The unique pattern of the cool summer winds that blow through these hills ensures healthy grapes of great character. The rich red Meerendal soil has a heavy clay base, resulting in excellent water retention right through the summer months. Although the annual rainfall on the estate is a mere 550mm, there is no need for irrigation due to heavy dewfalls and water retentive properties of the soil. Cellar master Liza Goodwin coaxes award winning wines from hand tended vineyards. These noble varieties include Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay, Pinotage, Shiraz, Merlot and Pinot Noir.
