Established by the French Huguenots in 1693 on the slopes of the Simonsberg Mountains between Paarl and Franschhoek Plaisir de Merle is a rare gem. This 974-hectare estate in Simondium Paarl has earned international acclaim for its white and red wines. About 400 hectares are planted with a variety of noble grape cultivars such as Chardonnay Sauvignon Blanc Cabernet Sauvignon Merlot Petit Verdot Cabernet Franc Shiraz and Malbec and an area of only about 80 hectares of prime vineyards has been set aside for the Plaisir de Merle cellar. Winemaker Niel Bester attributes the success of his wines to being able to work with great fruit coming from a very unique terrain and the invaluable input from his viticulture team.
