Nabygelegen Private Cellar

Good Wine Takes Time

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.

Two distinctive ranges are currently produced, both handcrafted from lovingly cared for vines in a style true to the terroir of the vineyards.

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.

The old cellar dating back to the mid 1800’s has been lovingly restored to make use of ancient vats and underground tanks. Situated beneath the beautiful Bain’s Kloof Mountain Pass you can experience personal cellar tours and tastings in the most rural of settings.
