With a long history and proud heritage, Cape Town HOMEMAKERS Expo exhibitor, Bosman Family Vineyards are deeply committed to fusing the old with the new, as they combine long-established tradition with cutting-edge innovation.
The farm was established in 1707, and in the 311 years since has built up a reputation as the home of some of South Africa’s best wines with their dynamic range winning numerous national and international awards.
The Bosman Family Vineyards have unrivalled access, knowledge, and expertise when it comes to crafting their wines. Petrus Bosman – managing director and head of wine and viticulture, Corlea Fourie – nurture and encourage a culture of fine wine. They take a hands-on approach to everything – from sourcing the best fruit from Bosman’s 3 different growing regions to picking the grapes by hand – working as naturally as possible.
A strict selection process in the vineyard and the cellar means that only the top 5% of the total harvest is used for production. While historic vines offer distinct vintages, a thriving vine garden allows for constant innovation and the perfect blend of old and new.
The Bosman family is dedicated to more than just wine. They are invested in the socio-economic welfare of the people who work on the farm. In 2008, the Bosman family and the Adama Apollo Worker’s Trust secured the biggest land reform transaction to date in the South African Wine Industry when 260 permanent employees received a well-earned share in 430 hectares of prime vineyard land.
In 2009, the Bosmans’ ethical and sustainable methods of producing and trading their wine received official Fairtrade certification.
While the wine at Bosman is the star of the show, the wine estate offers wine tasting, picnics and hiking trails at their satellite venue in the picturesque Upper Hemel-en-Aarde Valley, Hermanus.
The Bosman family are deeply passionate about wine and reward others who share this love for the vine. The Bosman Wine Club provides exclusive wine made and reserved for members with free delivery to their doorstep.
Find the Bosman Family Vineyards at this year’s Cape Town HOMEMAKERS Expo happening at the CTICC from 30 August to 2 September 2018.
