About the Winery
The Meerlust Estate has been part of the Myburgh family for eight generations, dating back to 1756. Long recognised for producing world-class wines, the Meerlust Estate is rich in charm and history. Today, the estate is lead by Hannes Myburgh, who studied winemaking at Geisenheim in Germany and Chateau Lafite in France. Meerlust is situated 15 kilometres south of Stellenbosch. In the summertime, ocean breezes and evening mists roll in from the coasts to cool the vineyards. The grapes ripen slowly, thus achieving full and concentrated varietal flavours. The 110 hectares are planted mainly with red varieties such as Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc and Pinot Noir.
