A jewel of the Stellenbosch, Paarl and Franschhoek Winelands, Plaisir de Merle Wine Estate was established in 1693 and their legacy continues to unfold through renewal and loyalty to the land. Tastings are conducted in the Tasting Centre, once an old barn which was built in 1823. The relaxed lounge atmosphere allows you to sample fine wines while ensconced in comfy couches and fine surroundings. This approach to wine tasting is designed to expand the whole experience and allow you to absorb not only the pleasures of the wine, but also to provide a glimpse of a past gracious era.

Did You Know...? Many tasting options are on offer, from standard, cellar tasting, and 2 food-paired tastings (one sweet and one savoury). Enjoy!
