“If you’re looking for excellent wines, atmosphere and hospitality, look no further! We had the most amazing wine-tasting experience, hosted by the kind and lovely Onida Morilly and Charlene. They also went out of their way to make us feel comfortable. We went to other wineries on the same trip and Bosman Family Vineyards was by far our favourite. I will absolutely recommend them to friends and family. We can’t wait to return!”

Tiffany

“Wow wine tasting extraordinaire! The Optenhorst Chenin 2013!!! The most beautiful setting and amazing service! Well worth a visit”

Julie

“The most incredible experience at Bosman Family Vineyards.
Onida is incredibly knowledgeable and added a special touch to our tasting. The wines are incredible. It truly is a farm to visit if you love Chenin – the Optenhorst is phenomenal and we had the opportunity to taste through many vintages as the farm is celebrating the 70th anniversary of this wine. Please visit, you will be so glad that you did.”

Bronwyn

“Gracious and warm, the Bosman family run a beautiful farm (vine nursery and wine business). 8 generations have worked the land, and in recent years, under winemaker Corlea Fourie, they have produced some exceptional wines. Never shy to experiment, expect more great things from this estate.”

Andrew

“It was my best wine-tasting experience ever!!! Out of this world, totally blown away with the beauty of the farm, Adam my new furr friend, the whole presentation, the wines and platters were out of this world!!! I will recommend everyone to go and experience this. Can’t wait to go again!”
