Franschhoek, Western Cape, South Africa
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”. 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 programme was established that now includes Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Grenache, Semillon and Viognier.
Marc Kent is the chief winemaker and driving force behind the dynamic farm. A maverick spirit, Marc is unafraid to experiment with the unconventional but his principal commitment is quality on every level.
An exciting blend of five grape varieties from innovative winemaker Marc Kent. The grapes come from several specially selected blocks of vines on Boukenhoutskloof’s estate, fermented and aged for up to 18 months in old French oak.
