Nelson Estate

Alan Nelson’s childhood dream was to own a wine estate, and he has worked tirelessly to attain it.

About

Alan studied law and for years ran a successful practice in Cape Town, enabling him to buy the historic, run-down property in Paarl in 1987, that he subsequently renamed Nelson Estate. The Estate is a family wine farm in every sense of the word, with most members of the family involved. Alan’s son Daniel, active in running the estate, and daughter Lisha, a top graduate of Stellenbosch University and one of South Africa’s brightest rising star winemakers. Her scientific background matched with a practical and passionate approach to winemaking ensures the production of top quality, handcrafted wines. Her husband Petrus is also involved, as the vineyard manager.

Nelson Estate’s beautifully made wines are now attracting deserved attention from critics worldwide. Their quality and style come partly from the complex granite-clay soils found here, and also from the cooling Atlantic breezes, mitigating South Africa’s fierce summer heat and helping promote the delicate flavours and fresh textures that are a feature of Nelson Estate wines.
