This range of delicious, everyday wines is a firm favourite on tables throughout the world - offering great value and superb drinking. We proudly named the range after the Crested Porcupine, a most unique and fascinating inhabitant of our farm. We’re also involved in its conservation through a research project - you can learn more by visiting www.porcupinequest.com
Boekenhoutskloof was established in 1776. Located in the furthest corner of the beautiful Franschhoek valley, the farm’s name means ”ravine of the Boekenhout” (pronounced Book-n-Howed). Boekenhout is an indigenous Cape Beech tree greatly prized for furniture making.
In 1993 the farm and homestead was bought and restored and a new vineyard planting programme was established that now includes Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Cabernet Franc, Grenache, Semillon and Viognier.
