The restoration of Nabygelegen began in mid-2001 with the extensive planting of new vineyards and the rejuvenation of the existing ones. With some vines planted in the 1940's and new plantings coming online yearly, our commitment to quality without compromise, is firmly on track!
Small productions of concentrated wines have already gained critical acclaim confirming our mission to create wines of character and concentration passionately reflecting our terroir, while using environmentally sound techniques in the cellar and vineyard. Subscribing to ethical labour practices and enthusiastically pursuing upliftment of the area.Nabygelegen, in the heart of the Bovlei "upper valley" winegrowing district just outside Wellington, enjoys a special interaction between diverse soils, slopes and climate, contributing to the farming of consistently high quality, super-premium wines in a very South African style.
Characterized by long dry summers and cold wet winters, the Cape enjoys a fairly moderate climate. The vineyards at Nabygelegen are to a large extent shielded from the Cape winter storms and intense summers by the overshadowing Limietberg mountain range on its doorstep. This, together with cooling catabatic airflows from the Groenberg Mountain, create the right temperature balance for easy ripening and moderate vine growth required for making our unique wines.
Lying nearby to the authentically rural town of Wellington under the majestic Bainskloof Pass and the Limietburg Mountains, you will discover a valley full of History and wonderful scenery. Experience the romance and lifestyle on a working vineyard. Our so far undiscovered destination offers a choice of Accommodation; The Gate House, The River Cabin and The Cottages, each offering magnificent views an instant feeling of relaxation.
