Background


The farm of Boekenhoutskloof was
originally granted to Huguenot settlers in
1776. For two hundred years it remained in
the same family. Over the two centuries
they engaged in agricultural activities as
diverse as tobacco, fruit, cattle and ultimately
wine production. The original owners
ceased wine production in the 1940s. The
existing partnership re-opened the winery
for production in 1996.
Lead by Cellarmaster Marc Kent (South African Winemaker of the Year, 2007), the Winery is now regarded as one of SA?s top producers. Boekenhoutskloof is a Syrah specialist, with its premium range selling out on release each vintage. The Chocolate Block, a Syrah based blend, is probably the most successful new offering to come out of SA in the modern era.
Boekenhoutskloof is acknowledged by Robert Parker?s Wine Buyer?s Guide and The 2009 Wine Report as South Africa?s # 1 producer.
