You will find the home and boutique winery of Nico van der Merwe Wines situated on the Polkadraai Road between Stellenbosch and Kuils River. After 26 years of professional experience as a winemaker in South Africa, as well as the South of France, the desire and dream of Nico to create his own wine increased.
In 1999 Nico and his wife Petra decided to start with their own wine making and so the first vintage of Mas Nicolas was vinified.
Since 1999 their range of wines has grown. Besides Mas Nicolas, their flagship wine, several others have been added. These being, the Nicolas van der Merwe Syrah, the Nicolas van der Merwe Red and White Blend, the Nicolas van der Merwe Five to Nine, the Nicolas van der Merwe MCC, the Cape Elements as well as the Robert Alexander range.
During August of 2005 the couple found their smallholding, Mooi Uitsig, called this due to its stunning view from the Cape Hangklip to the Tygerberg hills. A cellar has since been built, and visitors are welcome for wine tasting by appointment.
