Miller's Mile
The name Miller's Mile originates from Kosie Möller (Möller deriving from the Millers in Germany) and his farm Klein Parys, which is stretched out for a Mile next to the Berg River outside Paarl.

For more than 350 years, the cultures of Africa, Europe and the East have mingled in Cape Town, gateway to the South African Winelands, a city rich in colourful history and culturally vibrant. In terms of world wine production, South Africa ranks as number nine in volume production and produces 3.1% of the world's wine. The new Miller's range has adopted this culture and portrays it proudly. The range hopes to continue contributing to the volume of production South Africa delivers.

Currently 98 605 hectares of vines constitutes plantings for wine in South Africa. White varietals constituting 55% of the plantings, with Chenin Blanc plantings comprising 20% of the total. Red varietals account for 45% of the national vineyard. The most widely planted red varietal is Cabernet Sauvignon, accounting for 15% of the total. Shiraz now accounts for 9%, while Pinotage, which is indigenous to South Africa, and Merlot each represent 7%. The Miller's Mile range consists of all these cultivars and blends them very well to create and even more unique style own to Kosie Möller.

The traditional viticultural regions of the Cape Peninsula and surrounding regions have a Mediterranean climate with warm, dry summers and good winter rainfall, making irrigation unnecessary in most regions.
