Bovlei, Wellington, South Africa - At the foot of the majestic Hawekwa mountain range, a wondrous vinous jewel is positioned.

Its name discloses a great deal of its recipe for success because it is certainly the case that the secret nestles in the soil - and that the difference lies in the valley. Yes, Bovlei Wine Cellar, or Boven Valley Wine Cellar as it used to be known, knows full well how to spoil the wine lover with the fruit of its labour from its valley! But then, how could it do anything else? Since the cellar was founded in 1907, it has many times produced the glory of this region - a region that truly can be called not only "the cradle of the South African wine industry" but also received the nomination as the "Top Terroir region" of the industry in 2010.

Bovlei has 32 members and produces on average 8 000 tons per annum. In its more than 103 years of existence, there have been only eight chairmen and descendants of the original families still serve on the board or are still members of the cellar.
