The De Villiers family first set foot on South African soil as part of the French Huguenots in May of 1689.  The family has been involved with wine making stemming back to France and continued the tradition in South Africa.

In 1998 the first vines were planted in the De Villiers family vineyards in virgin soils including three hectares of Shiraz, six hectares of Cabernet Sauvignon and three hectares of Shiraz bush.

In 2001 the first bottle of Boschrivier Shiraz was produced.  Since the production of the first bottle of Shiraz, over the last 15 years Boschrivier Wines has been specialising in producing award-winning Shiraz.  In 2013 three new wines were added to the Boschrivier range: Rosé, Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon. Our main focus remains quality over quantity.

Boschrivier Wines is located on two farms that lie at the foot of the Klein River Mountain range on the R326 near Stanford.  Remhoogte farm hosts the vineyards from which Boschrivier wines are produced and a manor house turned into a wine house/coffee shop that is open to the public for wine tasting.  The Boschkloof farm has 5 different accommodation units for guests longing to experience the tranquility of country life.
