After settling in South Africa in 1990, Argentinian-born Billy Hughes was inspired to start his own wine venture in the Cape. After learning the ropes of viticulture and winemaking on his own, he and his late wife Penny bought an old wheat farm in Malmesbury, near Cape Town in the year 2000. Now, more than two decades after its inception, Nativo Wines continues to explore innovative and sustainable ways of making wine. The last few years has seen the addition of some single varietal wines to their range and the design of some one-of-a-kind cellar equipment.

The name Nativo encompasses allusions to Billy’s native origins, his progress to becoming a naturalised South African and desire to produce wines that are reflective of their origin, infused with site-specific characteristics.

Deliciously fragrant with notes of pineapple, dried apricots and marzipan interspersed among honeysuckle florals and zesty ginger spice. The palate shows medium weight and waxy texture balanced by clever acidity. Smooth and flavourful, the traces of orange blossom hang linger on the sapid finish.

Match this aromatic wine with full-flavoured dishes such as tuna carpaccio, grilled line fish with coriander, lime and ginger, chicken with citrus and chilli, or Thai green curry.

Press Reviews

Wine Advocate

89 Points - Anthony Mueller

The 2021 The Bees is composed of 100% Viognier and offers hints of citrus and honeycomb with a waxy and nutty marzipan essence. Medium-bodied, the wine offers meringue flavors before showing a delightful textural element that sways with pleasure and purity of fruit. The wine glides to a delightful, cerebral finish that lingers with a soft spiciness. Give it a try.
