Wine tasting at Plaisir De Merle 

For refined indulgence, visit our estate for the finest wines, food pairings, platters and the unparallel beauty of luscious lawns, ancient oak trees and the dramatic vista of the Simonsberg Mountain. The tasting room, an old barn built in 1823 offers breathtaking views of the Simonsberg Mountain and adjoining valley from where you can sample the fine selection of wines.

Franschoek Wine Tram now stops at our tasting room.
