About the Wine Estate

Veteran winemaker, Jacques Borman, established Boschkloof in 1996 to pursue his dream of starting his own family winery. His son, Reenen Borman, joined the family business in 2010 and took over the winemaking duties in 2012. Together their aim is to make site-specific wines and to showcase the beautiful soils their vineyards grow in. The land consists of rolling hills and picturesque mountain backdrops. The soil consists mostly of decomposed granite and koffieklip. The original vineyards on the farm consisted mostly of Cape Riesling, but Jacques decided to remove it and plant better-suited cultivars like Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, and Chardonnay. Today Boschkloof is most renowned for their Syrah, especially the single vineyard bottling called Epilogue. It was the first red wine of South Africa to score 98 points by an internationally acclaimed critic.
