A South African vineyard from 1776


In 1776, a small farm called Boekenhoutskloof (which can be translated as ‘ravine of Beech trees’) was created in the Franschhoek valley.

In 1993, some wine-lovers purchased the land took on a plan to develop a vineyard that today is able to propose diverse varieties such as Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Grenache, Cabernet Franc, Sémillon, and Viognier. Marc Carter Kent is the chief winemaker and director. He is known for his unconventional methods of blending varieties and of the wine-making process in general. Today, Boekenhoutskloof is considered as one of the most beautiful South-African estates.

Since 2010, Mähler-Besse is the exclusive distributer of Boekenhoutskloof wines on the French market. To start, 3 vintages, reserved for traditional customers: Porcupine Ridge Syrah, Porcupine Ridge Sauvignon Blanc, and The Chocolate Block.

When the farm was established, the Franschhoek Valley was extremely wild. Today still, the mountains are alive with indigenous animals, notably the majestic leopard. This wine was created to conjure up these wild legends of the past.
