Meerlust is one of the best known South African wineries and Vivat Bacchus customers are big fans.
Meerlust wines are long-time favourites at Vivat Bacchus and it all started with Meerlust Rubicon which has been in their cellars since the first restaurant opened in 2003.
Gerrie, South African co-owner of the restaurants, says, “Rubicon took South Africa by storm when it was released in the 1980s as a Bordeaux-style blend that could stand up to French wines and since then we have seen the winery go from strength to strength.”
November is Meerlust month
At this time of year, Vivat Bacchus likes to celebrate all things Meerlust; it is their winery of the month for November with wines offered at special prices on the wine list AND a wonderful wine tasting which takes place on Monday, 4 November at the Farringdon branch.
Get yourself along on 4 November to taste six great wines for only £15pp; two vintages of Rubicon (2013 and 2016), Chardonnay 2018, Pinot Noir 2017, Merlot 2015 and Cabernet Sauvignon 2015. There’s also 15% off your food and drinks bill on the night if you decide to dine at Vivat Bacchus before or after the event.
