Join us for a fun and educational evening with Winemaker Chris Boustred and enjoy some delicious wines from his South African Estate, Remhoogte. Come discover why South Africa is one of the most exciting wine regions! From stunning Chenin Blanc to bold, exciting Bordeaux blends, we have you covered. 

Remhoogte was officially established in 1812. The farm is now owned and run by the Boustred family. Second generation of Chris (winemaking and viticulturist) and Rob (marketing and sales) Boustred are now running the estate.

The Boustreds first came to Simonsberg, Stellenbosch to make wine in 1994 after making their money in interests outside of wine. The Remhoogte farm, which means ‘braking heights’ was there long before them with title deeds dating back to 1812.

Chris took over winemaking responsibilities from his father in 2007. After graduating with a degree in viticulture and oenology from the Stellenbosch University he was keen to put what he had learnt in to practice in different wine growing regions around the world. This meant working vintages and at wineries in Australia (Hartwell Vineyards, Margaret River), France (Chateau Fontenil in Pomerol, Bordeaux) and in the United States (Stags Leap, Napa Valley, California).
