Boekenhoutskloof

The wine cellar of Boekenhoutskloof

A little story from the Franschhoek Valley

The Boekenhoutskloof winery was founded in 1776 and is picturesquely situated in the farthest corner of the Franschhoek Valley. The name of the winery means "Gorge of Boekenhout". Boekenhout is a native beech tree in South Africa that is highly valued in furniture making.

In 1997 Boekenhoutskloof was completely restored and the vineyards were replanted with Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Grenache, Semillon and Viognier.

The figurehead

A slender lady adorns the Boekenhoutskloof logo. In her hands she carries the dove of peace and hope. She is the guardian of Boekenhoutskloof and stands for intrinsic quality. The leader, this lady was a landmark of the Cape of Good Hope.
