Set in the Drakenstein Valley surrounded by dramatic mountain landscapes, lush gardens and vines, the original farmstead complex is now a national monument with a rich and intriguing history of more than 300 years. Today, Boschendal is a Cape winelands icon and an acclaimed wine and food destination. Their vineyards and fruit trees have been joined by vegetable gardens and a growing herd of free range, 100% pasture fed Angus cattle reflecting our commitment to serving wholesome farm-to-table food.
The grapes were harvested by hand and carefully sorted upon arrival at the cellar. All 4 varietals are vinified separately and after malolactic fermentation in stainless steel tanks, barrel maturation followed in a combination of new and older 300-litre barrels for 18 months. The wines were then blended and bottled in the new Boschendal Heritage bottle.
