Boplaas is situated in Calitzdorp, a small picturesque village in the Southern Cape province in the majestic Little Karoo. The Nel family is part of a rich legacy that reaches back to more than 150 years. Boplaas is a family concern with Carel Nel, a Cape Wine Master, as owner and cellar master. Boplaas has long been regarded as in the forefront in premium wine production. Boplaas is known for world-class Ports and their award winning pot-stilled brandies".
In keeping with the biodiversity initiative, Boplaas devoted 2200 ha exclusively to nature conservation objectives, while a portion of income generated by wine exports is budgeted for conservation.
Boplaas is also the first winery in history to let an elephant help produce a wine through treading the grapes. A Boplaas Elephant Dry Rose 2008 wine is produced. Part of the profits will be donated to elephant conservation & research.
