Bolands Heritage of Collaboration
The captivating history of Boland Cellar in Paarl dates back to the late 1930s and the early 1940s.
In 1939 some 40 wine farmers of the Boland region came together to begin collectively pressing their grapes. Soon their joint production was too large for the existing facilities to handle and the group broke up, at which point nine bold farmers from the Paarl area, determined to continue their collaboration, decided to head out on their own and took the courageous step of forming their own winery on 17 June, 1941. Today, that winery is known as Boland Cellar.
Our growing partners vineyards cover approximately 1,900 hectares (almost 4,700 acres) in area across the Cape Coastal Region – from Paarl and Malmesbury to Durbanville and the Berg River Valley. The variations in terroir and climate across these areas create regional expressions of each varietal, giving our dynamic and award-winning winemaking team the opportunity to create wines of both high quality and distinctive character.
