If you are from Europe or North America you will be blown away by the quality and prices of the wines in South Africa, as well as the tasting experience.
Meerendal Wine Estate was the first winery we visited on our trip to SA. We were impressed by the low key atmosphere and the friendliness of the staff. We are frequent visitors to the Napa wine region in California where the crowds, the rush, the snobbery, the loud and obnoxious people, and the high prices really take away from the experience. Meerendal is completely different! Very knowledgeable staff, they pour as many wines as you would like to taste, and the wines are very good. There was no rush, the scenery is great, they have a wonderful restaurant, and the prices are about 25% of those in Napa or Sonoma. A trip to South Africa just to taste wine is worth the trouble and cost to get there! Honestly, you can get a VERY good bottle of wine for under $10 US.
