A New Generation of wines from an ancient and unique terroir

More About Merwida

The family originated from the region of Dordrecht in the Netherlands, where their ancestors owned a castle next to the Merwede River.

Today, the family lives next to a river remarkably similar to that on their ancestral grounds. The blue band on the bottle capsule symbolizes the river, while the front label recalls the ancestral crest.

Although the Van der Merwe winemaking tradition dates back to the 1800s the approach to current operations are innovative and dynamic. Wines made from selected vineyard blocks capture the essence of this magical terroir.

Our wines are characterized by rich fruit and subtle spice flavours.
