Nugan Estate is a premium producer of fine wine. It started as 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.  From there, winemaking was a natural progression.
Nugan Estate sources fruit from King Valley, McLaren Vale, Coonawarra and Riverina. Family operated, Nugan Estate is complemented by wine labels including Nugan Estate, Cookoothama and Talinga Park.
