Boschkloof is a family-owned winery in Stellenbosch, run by father and son winemaking team Jacques and Reenen Borman.
Together, Jacques and Reenan have combined excellent winemaking skills to produce very limited bottlings, which are often described as bringing together “Old World style” with “New World panache”.
Jacques learnt his trade working with the legendary Michel Rolland and the owners of Lafite and Mouton Rothschild. The influence of his time spent in France is evident; upon establishing Boschkloof, he replanted all vineyards with the French varietals he believed would perform best in the Stellenbosch terroir.
In more recent years, Jacques’ son Reenen has taken over the reins at Boschkloof. His leadership has seen focus shift to contemporary philosophies, with a huge push towards more sustainable ways of working. The Boschkloof style has changed, too: now, wines are lighter and produced with far less intervention, to better encapsulate their terroir.
