The view from these unique high altitude vineyards is something to behold. Situated between 420 and 620 meters above sea level on the Helderberg slopes, Uva Mira vineyards enjoy shale soils and decomposed granite which is perfect for fine varietal wines.
The tasting room has a stone Swiss Chalet style with elegant interior and panoramic views of Table Bay, False Bay, Cape Point and Table Mountain. This wine estate ensures that sustainable winemaking is practised and proteas are farmed and exported. Uva Mira’s winemaker, Mathew Van Heerden, has been named one of the Top Ten Winemakers in the World and recently walked away with the Diners Club Young Winemaker of the Year 2011.
It’s no surprise that his wines have received awards too in the way of Top 10 Wine Producing farms in 2010 (South African Wine Index) and their Single Vineyard Chardonnay has been awarded most constant wine above 96 points yearly.
Pop during summer for their Elevation Summer Sunset Evenings where you can feast on cheese and savoury meat platters alongside artisan coffees. The Altitude Experience Private Tasting involves a tasting of their single vineyard selections whilst the Elevated Mountain Vineyard and Cellar Experience Private Tasting takes you on a tour of their elevated sites.
