Boekenhoutskloof

Visit Boekenhoutskloof to celebrate the release of The Chocolate Block: the 2018 vintage!

 

While its fruit-forward, spicy and aromatic profile is signature to The Chocolate Block, the make-up of this wine is tweaked from vintage to vintage to best reflect the season and the Swartland vines that are integral to the wine's charm and personality. We can't wait to share it with you!

 

And, of course, once again the  Kitchen Jamming Blues Band will bring on the good vibes and Callie Louw from The Southern Smoke is going to blow your socks off with his Slow Smoked Pulled Pork Sandwiches.
