Mervida Winery Upgrades Its Wine Tasting Experience By Moving Into Huis Te Merwede

The Van Der Merwe family, 7th generation family vintners, have been growing grapes and making wine in the Breedekloof wine region since 1844. Their history steeps deep into these ancient floodplains and they have become pioneers in their field. The generational love shared for grape growing by cousins Schalk and Pierre has led to Merwida Winery becoming a hugely successful company. The opening of Huis Te Merwede is a tribute to this success.

Huis Te Merwede is one of the two original Merwida homesteads, built in the early 1970’s. The newly renovated homestead houses a stylishly atmospheric winetasting area where Merwida’s range of terroir-driven wines can be experienced, a tea-room and a conference facility. The stylish interiors spill-out onto the homestead’s lush verdant gardens, allowing visitors to also enjoy the fresh open air space.

The venue will also be available for small functions and intimate gatherings.
