A family owned wine farm with a boutique wine cellar, Nuy Valley is situated in one of the most beautiful valleys of the Cape Winelands, along Route 62. The Nuy Valley turn-off is about 15km from Worcester en route to Robertson and 75 minutes drive from Cape Town.
Owned and managed by the Conradie family, Nuy Valley Guest Farm is firmly established as a must-see venue along the wine route, complete with a wonderful restaurant and cellar. After a 40-year absence, winemaker C.P. Conradie, a fifth generation viticulturist and oenologist, resumed the practice of winemaking on the Nuy Valley farm.
The a la carte menu positively heaves with a huge selection of traditional and much-loved dishes, in which any of the following could feature on any given day: The West coast fish pie with potato and cheese sounds decadently comforting, but the smoked plaited fish pie and paella (with a variety of seafood) makes our stomachs growl in anticipation. The leg of lamb with gravy sounds too good for words, with the beef pinotage (cubed beef in rich, creamy mushroom and red wine sauce) also holding our interests. The salted beef with mustard sauce jostles with the smoked Kassler rib (served cold) as another favourite - but the smoked gammon dish with pineapple and quince jelly makes us weak in the knees! Traditional Afrikaans dishes are highly recommended for visitors to the area, and we’re sure the “Waterblommetjie” bredie must be heavenly.
For something sweet to round off a meal at Nuy Valley, we think the Cape brandy tart or Malva pudding with ice cream sounds unmissable, although the Black Forest Cake sounds devilishly delicious.
