 Founded in 1776, Boekenhoutskloof is one of the oldest farms situated up the "Valley" in the Franschhoek foothills. Marc Kent is the winemaker, cellarmaster, and part owner of this homestead and wine farm.
The Wolftrap is the latest edition to the stable of Boekenhoutskloof. There is a 250-year old wolf trap on Boekenhoutskloof and the name is a tribute to the pioneers who in the early days of the Cape erected a wolf trap, mistakenly believing that wolves inhabited the area. To date, no wolf either real or mystical has been seen in the valley.
Boekenhoutskloof, the Franschhoek winery that shot to prominence with its first Syrah (1997) and is today rated among the Cape's leading producers. Only approximately 600 cases of the Syrah, 800 of the Cabernet are produced. Boekenhoutskloof's has a more available second label, Porcupine Ridge.
The flagship range - which includes the very good Sémillon, also made in tiny quantities - was consciously formulated through Kent's own preferences, grape availability and his desire to focus on Franschhoek.
