Cool Bay is found in a non traditional wine area. You'll find them on the Robinson Pass above Mossel Bay. Carel Nel is the owner and cellamaster of these vineyards and he is well known in the industry for searching for new areas with cooler climates for wine production.
With encouragement from his daughters Nel decided to take up the wine challenge and Cool Bay wines was born. The wine focus is on both Sauvignon Blanc and Shiraz, which both thrive in a cooler climate.
The farm has been producing wine since 2009 with the Cool Bay Saugivnon Blanc Reserve 2009 being awarded top honour at the SA National Young Wine Show in the same year. Other wines in the range include a Cool Bay Sauvignon Blanc and Cool Bay Shiraz.
The farm is a wonderful visit and the tasting room is open almost year round, so stop by and enjoy something rather cool!
