About Merwida Winery

In 1840, Willem Petrus van der Merwe, moved to the Breede River Valley. His family came from the Dordrecht region in the Netherlands where they owned a castle beside the Merwede River. Since then, this estate has been the home of the Merwida Vineyards and generations of van der Merwe’s.

The family live next to a similar river to the one in the Netherlands and when looking at the bottle’s label, you will notice the blue band which symbolizes the river and the family crest. Even though their wine making roots go back to the 1800’s, their approach to wine production is dynamic and continuously innovative.

The family boast two generations of Springbok rugby players and superb wines with fruity and subtle spicy flavours. Their white wines include a Sauvignon Blanc 2012 and a Chardonnay 2011. The Sauvignon Blanc comes highly recommended served with chicken salad and Cape Salmon with basil pesto sauce. The reds include a Barbera 2011, Cabernet Sauvignon 2010, Limited Edition Pinotage and Shiraz Rose 2012 which is great served with Seafood Linguine or summertime salad. They also produce sparkling wine and fortified wines such as White Muscadel 2011.
