Bosman Family Vineyards

Bosman Family Vineyards farm vineyards in Wellington and Hermanus with wines made by Corlea Fourie. As well as producing wine, Bosman Adama is the largest vine nursery in Africa. As such, it has been important in improving vine health in South Africa and eliminating viruses in the vineyard, which in turn has driven wine quality in the Cape up. The first generation of the Bosman family, Hermanus, arrived on Leliefontein farm in 1798. Following a history of producing wines, in the fifties the family turned their focus to creating a vine nursery—they now own the largest vine nursery in Africa at Groenberg, Wellington. Another fifty years on and in 2007, Petrus Bosman, eighth generation, returned to making wines and renovated the 260-year-old cellar. The Bosman family is committed to improving social, economic and environmental practices and are part of the biggest Black Economic Empowerment project in the South African wine industry. The estate employs 260 full-time workers many of whom are themselves fifth generation families who have lived and worked on the farm and who now own 26% of the business and farmland.
