Mira Wines is a private, Boutique Vineyard in the heart of the Hunter Valley and is by appointment only .
We are Kiros and Ana, a husband and wife team who until recently, like many Greek Australians, made wine in our garage. Early on, there were many hit and miss vintages, depending on what grapes arrived at Flemington markets each year. We decided to take our passion a little further, this time , out of Sydney and into Hunter Valley Wine country. We wanted to be hands on, to know and grow the fruit that would become our wine.
We are among a group of small vineyard owners and winemakers with an immense passion for our wines . Properties like ours typically produce 2-3 thousand bottles each year. That is just 220-250 cases each vintage . The vineyard is singularly hand pruned and cared for by the two of us. The spraying is contracted out to a very experienced and capable local.
In Greek Mythology , the Ancient Greeks believed your Mira or life’s journey was determined at birth by the Three Fates . One spun the thread of life , one measured the thread and one cut the thread , symbolising when you died .
Our logo depicts an urn, which pays homage to our Greek heritage and was the first storage vessels for wine and olive oil. The cotton reel and scissors represent the story of your MIRA and The Three Fates .
We believe that wine, like life, is there to be shared and enjoyed.
The majority of the vines on our property were planted over 20 years ago, comprising of Muscat , Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon varieties.
The Muscat vines on "The Hill" were planted nearly 70 years ago and are amongst the oldest in the Hunter Valley. They are precious to us both. They produce magnificent fruit, perfect for making Moscato or left on the vine to dry and be enjoyed on a cheese platter. The previous owners called the Muscat vines "the old girls" and we do too!
