Thursday, 5 December (1930hrs - 2200hrs) Compass Room

A legendary winery founded in 1685

Boschendal lies between two renowned wine regions; the Simonsberg and Drakenstein mountains in Africa. The name Bos-en-dal, literally “Bossendaal” (wood and dale) farm, is one of the oldest wine producers in the New World.

The land was originally granted in 1685 to the French Huguenot émigré, Jean Le Long. In 1715 the property was purchased by fellow Huguenots, the De Villiers brothers. The elegant Manor House, an outstanding example of Cape Dutch architecture, was built in 1812.

After remaining in the De Villiers family for 164 years, the farm was sold to a Dutch farmer, D J Retief. After the disastrous phylloxera plague of 1896 destroyed the vineyards in the area, Prime Minister of the Cape Colony and South African visionary, Cecil John Rhodes, purchased the property in partnership with De Beers and set about restoring it to its former glory.

Until recently the farm was part of the Anglo American Farms Limited portfolio. Proud new owners, DGB (Pty) Ltd, took over the reins in 2005. As custodians of such a rich and distinguished heritage, DGB is committed to ensuring Boschendal’s place as one of the great wine estates of the world.
