This cellar located at the foot of the Langeberg Mountains, is one of the smallest co-operative cellars in South Africa.
Despite its size, Nuy enjoys a widespread reputation for its excellent wines which, year after year, win top prizes at local and national wine shows.
Nuy's Cellar follows a classic wine making style, with each wine honestly reeflecting its origins, its growing conditions and its unique varietal character.
The cellar offers sparkling wine, dry, off-dry and semi-sweet white wines, dry red wine, white and red fortified wines and grape juice.
The origin of the name "Nuy" remains the subject of speculation, with arguments ranging from a derivation of the River Snuy, to derivation of a Bushman, Hottentot or Korana word. But whatever the origin of the name the proud tradition of wine making started centuries ago in the area, lives on.
