The fertile alluvial soil and climatic conditions allow Colombard to thrive in the Calitzdorp, ideal for the crafting of the finest rabat (distilling wine), which is high in natural acidity and with delicate aromatics. Our rabat is then double distilled in an old copper pot still and allowed to slowly mature in Limousin oak casks, prior to blending and bottling unrefined, unfiltered and by hand.
Due to dry warm summers, cold winters and generally low humidity, the environment is ideal for the maturation of brandy, resulting in a far more concentrated spirit and final blend. Brandy production at Boplaas is truly a craft undertaking with only a few barrels bottled annually. The latest addition to our distilled product range is the Boplaas Whiskey, a blended cask aged grain whiskey to be enjoyed on the rocks or with a mixer.
Nestling between the vineyards on the outskirts of Calitzdorp, is Boplaas’ cellar tasting room, where friendly and knowledgeable staff will assist you with your tasting. We also offer a selection of local handmade produce in support of the local community.
