Once upon a time the owner of Miravel used to be a farmer in Zimbabwe farming everything from fruit to cattle, pigs and ostriches. Together with his wife Janine, they purchased a part of Dellrust, built a home and began living the dream and creating wine.

The name Miravel is somewhat a combination of their children’s names; Mark, Michael, Melanie and David. Maarten’s passion for wine has been around for a long time and after studying wine farm and production, the family’s extensive travels through Africa brought them back ‘home’. This adventure forms the very heart of their wine-making vision for Miravel. You’ll find it outside of Somerset west below the Helderberg Mountains.

The estate’s first award came in 2006 with their maiden 2005 vintage, thereafter the awards have continued. The labels display the ‘Footprints’ legend and in 2011, the Family Reserve was launched in time for the new generation of their family. Maarten believes that the wine merely represents their journey and all the people who have played in role in it. Take a visit to their family home and get a look at the vines where the grapes for their debut Sauvignon Blanc were grown.
