The Bovlei Building, on the R301 serves as the official Wellington Wines Taste Room.

Here, wines can be tasted in a homely atmosphere, where people can enjoy our warm hospitality. Even our younger guests can participate in a specially adapted "wine tasting", where
we substitute the wine for juice to play the role.

Our tasting facility is also wheelchair, cyclist and pet-friendly.

Bring along your picnic basket or order a platter from our on-site coffee shop, Bains Caffé.

Bookings are recommended for larger groups.

Choose between a selection of wine tasting options and delectable pairings.

Wine Experience

Wellington Wines & Bovlei Taste Room is a (proud) StreetSmart partner.

At Wellington Wines, we are proud to have StreetSmart as our partner in corporate social responsibility. As an organisation, StreetSmart makes a difference to a variety of organisations who in turn, make a difference in the local Wellington community.

StreetSmart has been in operation since June 2005. All funds raised go to selected and approved organisations that run programs for the normalisation of street- and vulnerable children.

The Bovlei Taste Room is the first to participate in the StreetSmart initiative through wine tastings, by adding a voluntary R5 to the tasting fee. As a guest, you are welcome to add more.

In 2018 the first beneficiary, “Ma’s for Wellington” received the funds generated through the Wellington StreetSmart partners. Wellington Wines and the StreetSmart partners continue to work towards a better future. To maximize the efforts achieved through StreetSmart projects, all resources are in support of these projects. Donations are therefore limited to StreetSmart projects.
