A tantalising journey of discovery.

When it comes to wine-farm destinations, Boschendal ticks all the boxes. With aplomb! A variety of dining offerings, top-drawer wines, and a slew of other attractions keep visitors – young and old – coming back for more.

And, while the farm has evolved into one of the leading hospitality destinations in the Western Cape Winelands, its three centuries of history as a humble working farm is palpably woven into every aspect of this storied estate.
