A legacy of pure wines
Three generations of exclusive quality wines and vines
The appellation of Mischa Estate lies in the sought-after hills of the Wellington, situated at the foot of the Groenberg on the banks of the Kromme Rivier (Dutch for Bend River) and forms the centre of the Cape Winelands with its picturesque environment and numerous wineries.
Wellington is a town in the Western Cape Winelands, a 45-minute drive from Cape Town, in South Africa with a population of approximately 62,000. Wellington’s economy is centred on agriculture such as wine, table grapes, deciduous fruit, and a brandy industry.
Some of the wineries in this burgeoning district, which is a mere 45-minutes from Cape Town, stretch over alluvial terraces towards the Swartland’s rolling hills and wheat fields, while others are found in the foothills of the towering Hawequa mountains, where folds and valleys create unique mesoclimates. Wellington, which supplies over 85% of the South African wine industry with cuttings, also boasts some 30 wine producers ranging from historical estates to boutique wineries. In winter, snow sometimes covers the mountain tops and night temperatures are generally cooler than at the coast some 60km away.
