Paarl Wine Route
Open on Sundays, Accommodation Available
The family-owned and managed boutique winery focuses on red wines and Bordeaux style blends. It was in 1999 that Bernard and Lola Nicholls 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 is the winemaker. At the heart of the farm, surrounded by 18ha of vineyards, is a Cape Georgian-styled manor guesthouse. Some 90% of the annual production of grapes is sold to wine producing cellars and the balance delivered to the Mitre's Edge cellar.
