Situated in the heart of the Durbanville Wine Valley you will find our family-owned and operated wine cellar. Although not intentionally award-driven, there is no denying the status of our Wine of Origin Cape Town, boutique wines. For us, being handmade is more than just a physical process and approach, it is about perfecting the small details along the way while treating each batch of juice with respect throughout its journey from the vine to Nitida wines. It is also about working with nature and thereby ensuring that the wine embodies our attitude and brand.

After the Veller family purchased the smallest of the Durbanville farms in 1990 Bernhard, a qualified engineer, took 2 weeks off work in 1992 to plant some vineyard, planning to only make a few barrels of wine.  Three years later we won our first Gold Medal for our Sauvignon Blanc.  In 2001 we were recognized as a benchmark Semillon producer.  Etienne Louw joined us in 2020 as winemaker and has continued the Nitida legacy of creating beautiful, award-winning wines that have a consistently loyal following.  Our method is always one of minimal interference and allowing the wines to show off our micro-climate.  Here, handmade is truly an attitude.

Nitida embodies devotion, passion and aspiration. Stroll through our cellar, take delight in our wine tastings and dine with us at Cassia Restaurant or Tables at Nitida.
