We stopped at this winery on a tour with Wine Flies. The cellar tasting with cheese pairing was exceptional. Our sommelier was very friendly and explained their wines, along with the paired cheeses. We found their wines to be exceptional and actually shipped several cases home. This winery was one of our favorites!

I visited here as part of a wine flies tour. This was a smaller vineyard making higher quality Bordeaux style wines. I enjoyed the tasting in the cellar of the owners home. A cheese plate accompanied our tasting.

Not well sign posted and the road id dodgy, but the wine and cheese pairing is one of the best. To make it better still, the pairing is delivered by the wine maker herself. Find this gem!

I bought a voucher on 27 September 2017, after due consideration of the expiry date which was on only 30 November 2017. When I got the voucher it stated that it must be used by 30 September 2017. Mitre's edge Vineyards then refused to honour the voucher and simply stated that their promotion expires 30 September 2017. The also stated that Hyperli requested them to extend their promotion, but that the current promotion expires 30 September 2017. On 30 September 2017 the voucher expired. There is miscommunication between Mite's Edge Vineyards and Hyperli and the consumer is the one to pay the price. So my advice do not do business with Mitre's Edge Vineyards or with Hyperli - you will only lose your money and end up spending way more time on these crooked people than they are worth.

Thank you for your comments, but would like to state that if you look at our Facebook page, you are the first person to give us a negative review on social media. Prior to your review, we were contacted by hyperli regarding this matter and we suggested that they offer you a private tasting with my wife, the winemaker. We also said that as a result of the confusion, we would open some of our exclusive wines for you. This offer still stands. I take strong exception to you calling us crooked, as we have not tried to do anything unlawful and as it is, we have absolutely no financial gain, from your voucher, as your contract is with hyperli. We hope that we can still welcome you sometime.

We really enjoyed our visit to this boutique wine estate. The owners are very friendly and so are their dogs. Enjoyed a cheese pairing, and it was great. We also bought some cabernet franc.

We visited Mitre's Edge and were welcomed most warmly into the beautiful family home of Lola and Bernard. We experienced a wine tasting with Lola, the wines were beautiful and perfectly paired with the cheeses. We learnt so much about the estate and the wines they produce. After the tasting, we got to blend our own wine, such a unique and personal experience. As complete novices under the watchful eye of a master winemaker, we created a blend and it was especially exciting to cork, foil and name our bottle which we could take home. We highly recommend this experience, it was very special, we hope to return. Thank you, Lola!

I recently had a chance to visit Mitre’s Edge again and was treated by the same warm and generous hospitality. The wines are excellent and the cheese pairings well-thought out and delicious! I definitely recommend wine lovers to stop here for a lovely experience of excellent wine and fantastic service - enhanced with some wonderful wine stories.

Very unique experience of having our wine tasting with cheese pairing in Lola's personal wine cellar. Lola was friendly, welcoming and very knowledgeable about the wine and cheese pairing. Above all else it was excellent wine!
Highly recommend this place for a personal and unique wine tasting experience!
