Family-owned and managed boutique winery, Mitre’s Edge, is nestled at the foothills of the Simonsberg Mountain, between Paarl and Stellenbosch. It is in this beautiful setting that winemaker Lola Nicholls, assisted by husband Bernard, focuses on producing relatively smaller quantities of high-quality, award-winning wines.
In 1999 Bernard and Lola took over the farm from Lola’s father, Martin Hunting, who had farmed there since 1969. Bernard threw caution to the wind and changed his career from mechanical engineer to wine farmer.
Lola’s passion for Bordeaux wines led to the replanting of the old Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards with newer clones of Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Malbec, Merlot and Petit Verdot. Shiraz was also planted, and to complement their wine list with white wines, some Chenin Blanc and Viognier vines were also planted.
Our Cape Georgian-styled manor house represents the ideal, serene retreat where small functions and wine tastings may be held, while our private wine cellar exudes an old-world charm – a fantastic setting in which to sample some of Mitre’s Edges’ finest creations. In addition to an exquisite wine tasting experience, our winery offers elegant accommodation for four people in its guest house.
Bernard and Lola warmly invite you to visit Mitre’s Edge to experience superb wines and gracious hospitality in the heart of the Western Cape’s stunning wine lands.
