Meerendal Wine Estate - (South Africa)
The origin of Meerendal dates back to 1714. It is therefore one of the pioneers in the wine field in South Africa. Blessed with one of the best terroirs, it enjoys a Mediterranean climate with welcome relief from the Pacific Ocean and the majestic Boland Mountains. Thys Smit is winemaker and cellar master and was finalist for the 2019 Diners Club Young Winemaker of the year Award. He takes the domain to (even) a higher level and makes every wine an unmissable pearl for every true wine lover. Today it is one of the absolute top domains in South Africa. She summarizes her conviction and goal as follows: 'Making superior wines, representing the region, with a willingness to work with nature rather than against her.' The view from the domain is extraordinarily beautiful! Meerendal is therefore not only limited to wine, but also houses a luxury hotel and a top restaurant and is also fully committed to offering South African artists a stage. In short, if you want to get to know South Africa better, Meerendal is an unavoidable must in your journey of discovery!
