Huis Te Merwede

The Van Der Merwe family, seventh generation family vintners, have been growing grapes and making wine in the Breedekloof region since 1844.

Their history steeps deep into these ancient floodplains and they have become pioneers in their field.

The generational love shared for grape growing by cousins Schalk and Pierre have led to Merwida Winery becoming a hugely successful company. The opening of Huis Te Merwede is a tribute to this success.

Huis Te Merwede is one of the two original Merwida homesteads, built in the early 1970’s.

The newly renovated homestead houses a stylishly atmospheric wine-tasting area where Merwida’s range of terroir-driven wines can be experienced, a tea-room and a conference facility.

The stylish interiors spill out onto the homestead’s lush verdant gardens, allowing visitors to also enjoy the fresh open-air space.

The venue is available for small functions and intimate gatherings.

The team at Huis Te Merwede, led by Lieza van der Merwe, provide visitors with a unique Breedekloof experience. From sipping wine by the pool, to enjoying delicious cheeseboards and eats from Cecile’s Tea Room, not stopping at Huis Te Merwede when passing through the Breedekloof is simply not an option.

“Merwida Wines finally have a home, and we couldn’t be prouder. Huis Te Merwede has added immense value to the Breedekloof Valley and has allowed visitors to escape to the Breedekloof and enjoy much needed R&R whether it be with a glass of wine, a quick bite to eat or a much-needed dose of caffeine”
