Porcupine Ridge is a range of delicious, everyday wines and is a firm favorite on tables throughout the world – offering great value and superb drinking. 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. Grapes for the wines are sourced primarily from Helderberg, Stellenbosch, and Swartland and the wines are certified sustainable by the Integrated Production of Wine.
