At Nuy, our goal is to steadfastly produce bottle after bottle of wine… wine of true character… We purposely run a limited operation here, in order to ensure that every part of the winemaking process is done under a watchful, experienced eye. So close your eyes uncork a bottle of Nuy and breathe in that character that sets our wines apart.
Nuy Winery is situated in the Nuy Valley at the foot of the Langeberg Mountains in the Western Cape. Average rainfall is low, but the Keerom Dam ensures a year-round water supply. During winter and spring, temperatures remain quite low, thanks to the periodic snow on the mountains. This promotes slower growth of the grapes and results in healthy, flavourful fruit.
First parts of the Keerom farm in the Koo were bought for future plans to a build the Keerom Dam.
The first wine produced in the Nuy Valley, White Leipzig, were served at Princess Elizabeth’s 21st Birthday banquet in South Africa.
The Keerom Dam starts supplying water to 12 farms in the Nuy Valley.
