The Bovlei cellar, on the Bainskloof road in Wellington, serves as our tasting room with interesting wine pairings offered throughout the year. Taste and purchase wines in a relaxed, comfortable atmosphere with breath-taking views of the mountains and vineyards.

We donate a significant portion of each wine tasting sold at the tasting room to StreetSmart and currently, we are the number one wine farm contributing to the fund.

The tasting room also offers a spectacular venue for weddings and intimate events, and we host a monthly Moonlight Market in Summer and a cosy Winter Market when the temperature drops. If you are a mountain biking, hiking or flower enthusiast, the Bovlei cellar is the ideal departure or wine-down spot. For more information follow us on Facebook [@WellingtonWines].

Bookings are recommended for larger groups.

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

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.
