Nugan Estate is a premium producer of fine wine. It is part of the Nugan Group which was founded in 1940 as a fruit and vegetable packer and expanded in the 1970s into juice production – later becoming one of the largest exporters of niche juice products to Asia.  In 1993 Nugan Group further diversified its operations planting vineyards and selling fruit under contract.  From there, winemaking was a natural progression.

Nugan Estate sources fruit from King Valley, McLaren Vale, Coonawarra and Riverina. Family operated by Michelle, Matthew and Tiffany Nugan,  the Nugan Group is now complemented by three wine labels, Nugan Estate, Cookoothama and Talinga Park.
