Sprawling over 110 hectares, the Meerlust Estate exudes an incomparable charm. Majestic oak trees, lush vineyards, and classic Cape Dutch architecture provide a picturesque backdrop for wine-lovers.

These include Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Cabernet Franc and Pinot Noir among others
At the heart of the estate stands the historic Manor House, a beautiful example of 18th-century Cape Dutch architecture. This grand abode is embossed with a rich heritage; its halls echoing with stories of the past. Adjacent to the Manor House, is the winery where Meerlust’s award-winning wines are artfully crafted.
