Kanonkop | Red Wine | Pioneers Of Pinotage
Kanonkop Wine Estate is situated in Stellenbosch, the premium red wine region of South Africa’s Western Cape Province. To many, Kanonkop is considered to be the South African equivalent of a Premier Cru or First Growth.
Long recognized for producing world-class wines, Meerlust Estate has been the pride of the Myburgh family since 1756. Today, the traditional dedication to the art of winemaking continues under the guidance of Hannes Myburgh, eighth generation custodian of this seventeen-century national monument. A tour of the estate reveals its historic manor house, classic wine cellar, rose gardens, family cemetery, dovecote and bird sanctuary.
