About the Winery

Boekenhoutskloof was established in 1776. Located in the furthest corner of the beautiful Franschhoek Valley, the farm’s name means “ravine of the Boekenhout” (pronounced Bookn-Howed). The Boekenhout is an indigenous Cape Beech tree greatly prized for furniture making. In 1993 the farm and homestead was bought and restored and a new vineyard planting program was established that now includes Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Grenache, Semillon, and Viognier.

Versatile Wines Named After a Celebrated Local

It is proudly named after the Crested Porcupine, a most unique and fascinating inhabitant of the farm. Boekenhoutkloof is also involved in its conservation through a research project.
