Plaisir De Merle has a rich history dating back to 1678, when the Huguenot Charles Marais and his family left the hamlet of Le Plessis Marly in France and sailed to the Cape of Good Hope to begin a new life. Charles Marais called his farm 'Le Plessis Marly' (which gradually changed to Plaisir De Merle) as a tribute to his birthplace. Plaisir De Merle is today one of the largest wine farms in the city, covering around 974 hectares. Plaisir De Merle's goal has always been the integration of vineyard practice and wine making, thereby producing wines of unsurpassed quality. This philosophy has now borne fruit with the introduction of an exclusive range of wines, designed to find favor with the most discerning palate. Wine tasting sessions are available.
