You don’t expect things like this to happen when you are a Chemistry student in your hometown. Travelling to other side of the world to join the harvest of one of your most favourite Estates just sound too good to be true!
These were my thoughts again, back in 2013, when I met the Head Winemaker of Meerlust, Chris Williams, at the Knightsbridge store of Amathus drinks. He came in with a big smile on his face and asked if we would be happy to try a vertical of Rubicon with him? “Happy?”, I asked myself; “thrilled” would be much more accurate!!
So, here we are. A few years down the line and I am the Brand Manager of Meerlust wines in the UK. *insert excited face*
My absolutely memorable South African adventure at the “out of this world” Estate can be summarised in the pictures below, enjoy and explore!
Going to South Africa? You simply cannot miss visiting Meerlust Estate!
The loveliest of people, the most stunning of scenes, the most delicious and historic wines!
This is where the South African wine developed to become of top quality, this is the birthplace of Rubicon, the wine that became a worldwide sensation!
