Wine Tasting at Nelson's Creek Wine Estate

The Nelsonís bought their first wine farm in Stellenbosch and after saving, bought Nelsonís creek in 1987. Originally named Wittenberg, the farm was one of the first to be chosen in 1692 by French Huguenots to use to farm wine grapes. Thereafter old vines were replaced with cultivars of noble variety including Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Shiraz, Pinotage, Sauvignon Blanc, Chardonnay and Semillon. It took only one year after wine production began, for their wines to impress and Nelsonís Creek won the Best Chardonnay in South Africa.

It is a family-run estate with eldest daughter, Lisha Nelson, assuming the role of winemaker. In 2007, she began producing wines and is one of the first female winemakers in the country to produce a range of wines under her own name - Lisha Nelson Signature Wines. The modern cellar was constructed before 1995 and continues to usher superb offerings of wine.

There is so much to enjoy at Nelsonís Creek aside from great wines. Enjoy hiking and mountain biking, canoeing, fishing, archery and carriage drives. Celebrate your wedding; host a business conference or special event. The family host a Farmerís market on Saturday mornings which should not be missed.
