Boekenhoutskloof established in 1776. Located in the furthest corner of the beautiful Franschhoek Valley, the farm’s name means “ravine of the Boekenhout”. The Boekenhout is a Cape Beech tree greatly prized for furniture making. In 1993, the farm and homestead were bought and restored, and a new vineyard planting program was established. Today, Marc Kent is the owner, chief winemaker, and driving force behind the dynamic farm. A maverick spirit, Marc is unafraid to experiment with the unconventional, but his principal commitment is to quality on every level and in every detail.
