Nugan Estate is a top 20 wine producer and the 13th largest exporter of branded wine in Australia. The story of Nugan Estate spans 80 years, three generations, and displays determination, passion and grit. In 1938, Alfredo and Annelise Nugan fled their home village of Alcira, Spain and migrated to Australia. As immigrants they brought with them aspects of European culture including the enjoyment of wine. By 1940 Alfredo was selling locally produced seasonal fruit and vegetables in Griffith and built a reputation for his quality produce.
Nugan Estate completed their first commercial vintage in 2000. The family built a state-of-the-art winery that was completed in 2002, sourcing wine grapes from premium vineyards in the Riverina, King Valley, Langhorne Creek, Coonawarra, McLaren Vale, and Wrattonbully regions. Still family owned and operated by Alfredo's grandson Matthew who joined the business in 1984 and maintains the family traditions and shares their passion for good wine: - please enjoy this insightful video… - *(published: August 2020)
