Our History
The Nel’s of Boplaas can trace their lineage, as many South African families can, back to the very first French Huguenots who were forced to leave France due to religious presecution and made their way to the southern tip of Africa and the Cape of Good Hope in 1688.

Famed for the quality of potstill brandy, the Nel’s of Boplaas made their first export to London in 1880. ┬áThe old oak barrel making the arduous 260 km journey by ox wagon to Worcester, then steam train to Cape Town harbour before boarding a postal ship to London.

An illustratious heritage of crafting quality wines from meticulously tended vines continues across the range of sparkling, table and fortified wines crafted today by Carel and his family on the farm – and the eponymous Potstill Brady is still crafted.

Since establishing the current cellar facilities in 1980, Boplaas have amassed a multitude of accolades, amongst them including: top performing cellar at Veritas 2005; top private cellar in 2009, 2011, 2013 – while amassing 5 double gold and 6 gold medals at Veritas 2013; garnering a total of thirteen 5 Star ratings from Platters’ South African wine guide since 1994; crafting the South African Champion Sauvignon Blanc in 2009 & 2010 at the SA National Young Wine Show and winning the SA Port Trophy five times at the SA National Young Wine Show; and crafting South Africa’s first Estate Brandy with the release of the Boplaas 5 year old Potstill Brandy in 1994.

Accolades aside, it has always been our aim as family to honour oupa Danie’s declaration that, “We are wine people!” by crafting exceptional quality wines from the unique terroir of the Cape.

Boplaas is situated in a small picturesque village in the Southern Cape Province, surrounded by the Swartberg, Rooiberg and Kleinberg Mountains – approximately 450 km from the Cape Town on the R62.
