We arrived at Meerlust's iconic windmill on a rainy, grey Winter's day and could not have been more excited with what we found.. A random fact to start this review: Did you know that "Meerlust" means"pleasure of the sea"? I didn't until our visit. If...More

A simple wine tasting experience. The cab sav was amazing, the rubicon too. Knowledgeable staff member. Not sales at all, quietly confident. Nice areas for kids to explore (we had 4!). Worth the stop.
