Wine Making

Whilst the van der Merwe winemaking tradition dates back to the 1800’s, the current generation of proprietors has a dynamic and innovative approach to their operations. The vineyard plantings and viticulture practice is in line with global development and contemporary technology has been incorporated into the Merwida Winery.

The wines, made from selected vineyard blocks, capture the essence of this magical terroir and are nurtured through the winemaking process. Both white and red wines are characterized by rich fruit and subtle spice flavours. The reds are deep coloured and complex yet have soft rounded tannins that enhance the drinkability – this is what makes the wines so special.
