Meerendal Wine Estate

Meerendal Wine Estate dates back to 1702 when Governor Willem Adriaan van der Stel granted the farm to Jan Meerland.

The estate lies in one of the coolest wine regions in South Africa making it ideal to plant the noble cultivars: Shiraz, Pinotage, Merlot, Sauvignon Blanc and Chardonnay.


Meerendal is producing two ranges of wines:

  • The Prestige range consists of the very best of Meerendal and made in small quantities – a wooded white wine, two red wines, a natural sweet wine and a MCC.
  • The Standard range includes seven cultivar wines, a Rose and a blended red wine.
