The Winery

What is it that turns a bottle of wine into a great bottle of wine?

  • True legacy.  The gift of a history steeped in experience.
  • True inspiration.  Inspiration derived from honing the talents of fertile soil, ideal climate and fruits of a superior vine.
  • True mastery.  Mastery that can only come with time and experience.
  • True Taste.  Taste derived from passionate winemaking, blended with a whole lot of soul. This is the essence that embodies wines of True Character, Wines by Nuy.

Founded in 1963, Nuy Winery was built on only one cornerstone:  Quality



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’s Cellar Masters are well traveled; they’ve gleaned experience from wine regions in France, Germany, Australia and America.  Each individual shows true commitment to producing only the finest wines.  Years of winemaking experience, untapped natural resources, time and patience bring out the best in every bottle of Nuy wine.

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.
