Remhoogte is a small family owned and run estate. It was purchased by Murray and Juliet Boustred in 1994. New vineyards were planted, the existing building were restored and a new cellar built. The first wine produced was five barrels of Cabernet Sauvignon in 1995. Production slowly increased and at present 8 000 cases of wine are produced each year.
In 2007 Chris Boustred joined the estate as winemaker. After graduating from Stellenbosch University with a degree in Oneology and Viticulture he spent two years working the harvests in Margaret River in Australia, Chateau Fontenil in Bordeaux and in the Napa Valley, California. It remains a family run estate with brother Rob and sister Sam doing sales and marketing.
Their wines are a product of ancient soils, steep slopes and winds off the cold Atlantic Ocean. They tell the story of the vineyards, their heritage and passion for winemaking and preserving the land for future generations. The aim is to bring joy to all who experience the Remhoogte wines and to make them feel a part of the Remhoogte family.
