Bosman Family Vineyards

An 8th generation family story of vine to wine devoted to responsible handcrafted wine-making.

About the winery
Making wine in a 260 year old cellar. The Bosman family’s original 18th century cellar was lovingly and carefully restored in 2006, preserving much of the original features of the cellar in the renovation. Heritage is evident in the beautiful walls of the old kraal, the open cement fermentation tanks, the roof structures and the thick original cellar walls. The old production cellar makes the perfect tasting room, while the original open fermentation tanks host the vinoteque. To ensure personal attention and a customised experience, wine tastings are by appointment only.

History & Geography
The rich history of Bosman Family Vineyards is a testament to the family’s commitment to people, the land, and of course, the art of wine-making. Lelienfontein, home of Bosman Family Vineyards was originally issued to French Huguenot, Philip de Royan in 1699. The first generation of the Bosman family arrived on the farm in 1798. The Bosman family produced wine on the estate up until 1957, when the family turned their focus to their vine nursery. In 2007, 8th generation, Petrus Bosman, returned to the long-held family dream and released the first wines from their newly renovated 260-year-old cellar. Today, the descendants of Hermanus Bosman are proud custodians of both his land and his legacy, devoted to responsible, handcrafted winemaking.
