Friday afternoons at Bosman Family Vineyards
Wine tasting in Wellington
Take a leisurely drive out to this eighth generation wine farm in Wellington for a Friday afternoon tasting.
You’ll sample their fantastic range in the old farm’s red wine cellar; evident from uneven cement walls stained crimson. Adjacent to this is the family museum; here a rusted iron gate bears the family crest ‘Fides spes at amor’ meaning: ‘Faith, hope and love’.
Try the rosé - made from 30 different varieties sourced from their vine garden in the upper Hemel-en-Aarde Valley in Hermanus; and the Adama 2008, so named for vineyard worker, Adam Appollis, who was with Bosman Family Vineyards at inception. There is a story and a sense of history behind their blends that make for an interesting tasting experience.
Spend a leisurely Friday afternoon sampling the wines and enjoying the sense of history that this beautiful farm holds. Tastings are welcomed by appointment so make sure you call ahead to let them know you’re coming.
