Nuy on the Hill - the best place to enjoy fine wines, great food and excellent company

BY MARITSA BEATTIE - DECEMBER 18, 2017

The famous Nuy Winery is situated at the foot of the Langeberg Mountains between Worcester and Robertson, and to make their wine tasting more accessible they opened a beautiful new venue, called Nuy on the Hill in 2015.

The venue has been artfully designed to accommodate Nuy’s wine tasting facilities, a deli-come-padstal and a large, glass-fronted restaurant that offers sweeping views across the Breedekloof vineyards.

Open Monday to Sunday from 9:00am to the late afternoon, Nuy on the Hill is a destination eatery and, in my opinion, it is worth the drive from whereever you happen to be.  Spend time wine tasting, let your kids explore the garden, playground and a playroom and, when you’re ready, take a seat and enjoy a slow and enjoyable meal.

The modern, high ceilinged restaurant offers indoor seating around a large fireplace for the cold winter days as well as a spacious patio surrounded by expansive green lawns for the summer months. 

The menu offers all the family favourites including steaks, burgers and delicious wood-fired pizzas.  The tapas menu is great for an afternoon of wine tasting with a variety of unusual but very tasty morsels, such as the Usuku, which is a bacon wrapped date with cajun spiced aioli.

My favourite is their signature Roosterkoek Burger, which was served with homemade garlic aioli. They also do amazing freshly baked cakes and their barista serves excellent coffees.

Service is tip-top and, although I like to linger, travellers on the R60 can expect quick service if that is what they request.

Nuy on the Hill is a wine connoisseur’s paradise and most of the Nuy Winery’s top wines are available and may be bought from the tasting room. Craft beer lovers have not been forgotten as Nuy serves craft beers from the famous Mountain Brewing Company.

The venue is also pet-friendly and has a watering point. Don’t leave without their pet-friendly biltong snacks.

Since the venue can seat around 145 people inside and 30 outside, they also do private night functions.

For those wanting to exercise before indulging, a mountain bike track is available on the farm as are showers onsite with no water restrictions!

What a wonderful place to spend a summer holiday with family.  See you there!
