Taste Wine

The Bovlei Building (Previously Bovlei Cellar), serves as the official Wellington Wines taste room. Here, wines can be tasted in a homely atmosphere, where everyone will feel comfortable. Even the younger guests can participate in a "wine tasting" and the venue is wheelchair friendly. While we do not have a restaurant, the wine pairing menu is changed regularly, and platters can be ordered on the side. Sementhas Pancakes, made with a splash of Sauvignon Blanc, can be recommended.

Bookings are recommended for larger groups.

Bovlei Taste Room is a StreetSmart partner.

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

The Bovlei Taste Room is the first to participate in the StreetSmart program through wine tastings, by adding a voluntary R5 to the tasting fee.
