Centrally sited just outside Durbanville the farm offers wine lovers and food enthusiasts a peaceful refuge to relax before setting off to explore the rest of the valley. Visitors are reminded that this is a working farm and, while children are welcome, they must be supervised at all times.
For this 300-year old wine estate, history was made in 1714 when Christina Stans, widow of the first owner, planted 60,000 vines on the rolling hills of Meerendal. Following in her footsteps, Liza Goodwin, cellarmaster and winemaker since 1998, kept this tradition alive. Privately owned since 2004, Meerendal Wine Estate has been developing into one of South Africa’s top wine estates. Since 2012, “Team Meerendal” has represented the wine estate at the world’s biggest and toughest mountain bike race, the Absa Cape Epic.
