A true icon among South African lovers, Meerlust offers a nice range of red wines (Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Pinot Noir, the infamous Rubicon blend) as well as some very nice Chardonnays. Enjoy the tasting in the small but cosy lounge, where all the walls are covered with modern art posters. The surroundings are also a great way to unwind, with old Cape Heritage buidlings, and flowered gardens.

Did You Know...? Quality of wines is not the only concern at Meerlust, where social and environmental sustainaibility take an important role both for owners and workers.
