Overview
More
Agriculture and a simple farm lifestyle is at the heart of Boschendal. One of the oldest farms in South Africa, founded 1685, the farm has grown with the passing centuries into a cherished source of wholesome produce, great wines and happy memories. Set in the Drakenstein Valley surrounded by dramatic mountain landscapes, lush gardens and vines, the original farmstead complex is now a national monument with a rich and intriguing history of more than 300 years. Today, Boschendal is a Cape winelands icon and a cherished wine and food destination. Our vineyards and fruit trees have been joined by vegetable gardens and a growing herd of free range, 100% pasture fed Angus cattle reflecting our commitment to serving wholesome farm-to-table food. Guest accommodation is also a recent addition to the farm with luxurious cottage accommodation ranging from the exclusive and historic Rhodes Cottage built by Sir Herbert Baker to the elegantly restored Werf Cottages. Cottage guests enjoy access to the entire farm where they can walk and cycle on trails through mountain fynbos, dine under the stars, have picnics and sundowners in exclusive areas, fly-fish in the dams and swim in pristine mountain water.

Be sure to book whether it’s Werf or Rhône picnic. The former is closed Mondays & Tuesdays much to our disappointment as we really fancied the beanbag idea. Regardless, we spent a lovely few hours picnicking in the Rhône grounds today. The children enjoyed some...More

Boschendal was one of our favourite wineries in the Cape. Intending on going for a standard tasting, in the end we were swayed by the Oyster and MCC tasting. Very indulgent but so worth it. We didn't realise but it was a private tasting with...More

This is a good example of a place that has steady traffic and is far too comfortable with themselves. Arrived for a late lunch. The grounds looked like an after party. Lunch baskets, serviettes, rubbish. Some cutlery on the table has been used. The young...More

Immaculately looked after - worth a visit. We had a decent casual lunch in the Farm Store Deli (with the local wine of course!). Grounds are lovely and worth a wander. NIce small rose and herb gardens too.
