Nugan Estate

New South Wales | Riverina

James' Review

Nugan Estate arrived on the scene like a whirlwind. It is an offshoot of the Nugan Group headed by Michelle Nugan (until her retirement in Feb 2013), inter alia the recipient of an Export Hero Award in '00. In the mid-1990s the company began developing vineyards, and it is now a veritable giant, with five vineyards: Cookoothama (335ha), Talinga Park (115ha) and Manuka Grove (46ha) in the Riverina, Frasca's Lane (100ha) in the King Valley and McLaren Parish (10ha) in McLaren Vale. The wine business is now in the energetic hands of Matthew and Tiffany Nugan, Michelle's children. Exports to the UK, the US and other major markets.


Nugan Estate is a top 20 wine producer and the 13th largest exporter of branded wine in Australia. With a reputation for consistently exceeding expectations, Nugan Estate sources grapes from Australia’s premium vineyards in leading wine growing regions in the Riverina, King Valley, Langhorne Creek, Coonawarra, McLaren Vale and Wrattonbully. 80 years on, the third-generation winery remains family owned and operated by Matthew Nugan. Committed to minimising their carbon footprint, Nugan Estate have adopted several environmentally friendly practices, with a focus on building a sustainable company for future generations. Distributed throughout Australia and Exported to the EU, UK, US, Canada, and Asia.
