The Nesci family first chose this valley in 1948, carving their place by hand from virgin bush. The soils of the Valley are predominantly sandy brown over clay, and as the climate is typically Mediterranean with wet winters and dry summers, ideal grape growing conditions are abundant. Additionally, the underground spring running through the estate feeds water to the vines throughout the year, ensuring the vines never suffer drought and produce consistent harvests of full flavoured grapes.
Varieties include Sauvignon Blanc, Chenin Blanc, Semillon, Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, Grenache, Merlot, Shiraz, Cabernet Sauvignon, Zinfandel and Pedro Ximinez. Wine can be purchased at the estate or online, with some wines exported too.
Nesci Estate Wine Farm's stone and timber cellar door is open Saturdays and Sundays from 12pm-5pm, where tastings or glasses of wine can be enjoyed with woodfired pizzas and live music on the lawn.
