About the winemaker

Meerendal

Only about 30 km north-east of Cape Town, the tradition of the Meerendal wine estate began as early as 1702, when Governor Willem Adriaan van der Stel, son of Constantia founder Simon van der Stel, handed over the land, which was fertile but hardly used at the time, to Jan Meerland. When he died at sea in 1706, his widow Christina Stans took up viticulture and ten years later had already cultivated 60,000 vines. Gradually, more and more wheat fields were planted with vines. Even today, they still adhere to the preferred viticulture method of the time, the so-called bush training, in which the arrangement of the vines in even rows ensures that the available soil is used in the best possible way. Due to their low height, the sunlight reaches all the vines in the same way and with the same intensity, without them shading each other.
