Mitre's Edge Wine Estate
The farm is owner managed by Bernard and Lola Nicholls and was originally purchased by Lola's father, Martin Hunting in December 1969 and was handed on by him, some thirty years later, in 1999.
Originally the vineyards were planted entirely of old clone Cabernet Sauvignon and the grapes were delivered exclusively to Nederburg.
Lola's passion for Bordeaux style wines led to replanting the vineyards with newer clones of Cabernet Sauvignon and also Merlot, Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. Shiraz was also planted.
Bernard threw caution to the wind and made a career change from Mechanical Engineer to Wine Farmer.
Our viticultural cosultant is Danie Kritzinger from Farmsecure Agri Science and our vineyards are personally cared for by Bertus de Clerk and his expert team.
The first wines were released in 2007.
