One Estate - Two Different Picnic Experiences
We now offer two different experiences with our Werf Garden Picnic and our Rhone Classic Picnic. The two picnics are held at different areas on the farm. The link below will help you choose which picnic best suits your mood. .
The Boschendal MTB trails are now open.
The new trails are now open to MTB lovers. 3 marked circuits from 7 to 21km's in distance. Some of the sweetest single track in the Western Cape! Permits R50 per day from our Farm Shop & Deli.
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.
Given our exceptional winemaking heritage of almost 300 years, the Boschendal cellar masters meticulously balance rustic tradition and modern innovation to produce classic, fruity wines while upholding the ecological integrity that has become synonymous with our brand.
The Cape Dutch farms were historically renowned for their warm welcome and generous hospitality. What crowned this welcome was the Cape table, laden with wholesome dishes made from ingredients from the farm’s werf and fields.
Guest accommodation is a recent addition to the farm with luxury accommodation ranging from the historical Herbert Baker designed Rhodes Cottage to beautifully restored farm labourer cottages. With emphasis on stylish simplicity the guest cottages are authentic, rural yet contemporary in character.
Boschendal provides an idyllic natural setting for large and small functions. The Boschendal Manor House, Rhone Homestead, The Olive Press, the Werf Restaurant and the beautiful gardens are available to host an array of celebrations or events in a relaxed and tranquil environment.
Guests are invited to enjoy all this magnificent farm has to offer: an award winning wine and bio-friendly food experience; a rich heritage; a spectacular natural and soulful landscape; fun, informative and engaging activities whilst also taking the opportunity for some down time in tranquil surroundings.
