Mischa Estate is nestled in the valley of Wellington below Groenberg Mountain. Third generation Mischa Estate was bought just after the Second World War by the winemaker, Andrew Barns’, Grandfather. He chose
the farm because for its complex soils and magnificent view of Table Mountain.
After three generations of wine grape production, Andrew and his family decided to use their extensive viticulture knowledge to start producing Mischa wines. They created a small winery for limited production of only the highest quality, unique wines. 9 years later, they are producing some of the finest quality wines and continue to win awards time and time again. Their wines have received numerous gold or double-gold awards and top marks from Robert Parker Jr, Wine Enthusiast, John Platter and more.
Today, Mischa offers beautiful accommodation, a perfect setting for intimate events and a tasting experience that won’t be matched in the Western Cape.
These wines are made from Mischa's Estate grapes, turned into wine in their cellar and bottled on the Estate. Maximizing the relationship between soil, plant and grape health, they utilise nutrition farming and expertise to produce only superior quality wines. Estate wines are limited in production and are composed of 100% of the best of harvest fruit!
