More about us

Boplaas is situated in Calitzdorp, a small picturesque village in the Southern Cape province in the majestic Little Karoo. The Nel family is part of a rich legacy that reaches back to more than 150 years. Boplaas is a family concern with Carel Nel, a Cape Wine Master, as owner and cellar master. Boplaas has long been regarded as in the forefront in premium wine production. Boplaas is known for world-class Ports and their award winning pot-stilled brandies”. The Touriga Nacional is the newest addition to their range of wines and has already proven to be a winner at regional and international wine competitions.
