Muratie - Great wine culture and tradition
Muratie is one of the oldest wineries in South Africa and is also a listed treasure. This historic site is home to a wealth of art treasures within an architecture dating back to the country's founding years. This very special winery is located on the foothills of the impressive Simonsberg and the vineyards surrounding the old farmhouse are probably the best for red wines in the country.
The winery has been owned by the Melck family since the 17th century. Today, Dr. Rijk Melk, a doctor, is the successor of Ronnie Melk, who has done a great service to South African viticulture. For the direct descendants of the legendary first owner Martin Melck, who emigrated from East Prussia to South Africa in the 17th century and who was the founder of the Lutheran Church in Cape Town, quality and sustainability are of paramount importance.
