Boplaas Family Vineyards with their world-class Wine and Ports will amaze any Wine/Port lover. The aim at Boplaas is to craft wines of unfaltering quality to best express the vintage, variety, vineyard and craftsmanship of the cellar and vineyard team.
Situated along Route 62 in the Klein Karoo district of Calitzdorp, lies the vineyards of Calitzdorp Cellars who has won a number of award winning white, red and fortified wines. With the natural beauty and breathtaking landscape, it is worth a stop along the world’s longest wine route.
De Krans was the first in South Africa to produce a Touriga Nacional as a dry red wine, made the first Pink port-style wine, as well as the first perlé Moscato wine in South Africa. Each year in February visitors get the chance to pick their own Hanepoot grapes. From approximately the last week in November until the first week in December visitors can pick their own apricots on the farm as well. All the dishes have been paired to be enjoyed with wines from the De Krans range, creating the perfect food and wine pairing.
