The iconic Boschendal Wine Estate dates back to 1685 when the farm Bos-en-Dal was first granted to a French Huguenot, Jean Le Long. The Huguenots are credited with introducing viticulture to South Africa. Over the centuries, ownership of the farm comprising Boschendal, changed several times until the late 1890’s, when Cecil John Rhodes bought up several farms in the Dwars River Valley and established Boschendal.
