Arniston Bay – Merlot
Merlot is a red wine grape variety with strong historic ties to Bordeaux.
Arniston Bay is a place where the pace of life is slow. Where you can sit back, relax and soak up the South African sun. It’s a place so special, it inspired a wine. It doesn’t matter who or where you are, you can always enjoy a quiet moment from a busy lifestyle – an Arniston Bay moment – with a glass of Arniston Bay.
