More about us

Tucked away in a fertile hamlet at the very edge of the Cape winelands and at the heart of the Klein Karoo, one finds Boplaas Family Vineyards and the Nel family, who since 1880 have tended vines and crafted wines in Calitzdorp.

Owner and cellar master, Carel Nel – a descendant of Danie Nel whom in 1880 exported Cape potstill brandy to the U.K. under the Boplaas brand – farms 70 ha of vines with his children Margaux (winemaker), Rozanne (marketing), and Daniel (distiller) hand -crafting fine sparkling wine, still wine, Cape fortifieds, Muscats and Potstill brandy.

In keeping with the biodiversity initiative, Boplaas devoted 2200 ha exclusively to nature conservation objectives, while a portion of income generated by wine exports is budgeted for conservation.
