THE WINE STORY
Following their extensive experience in the wine and agricultural industry in South Africa, two old university friends Neels Barnardt and John Boyes collaborated to form the Barnardt Boyes company.
John Boyes then approached his sister, Carrol Boyes, the well-known South African designer, to create a unique range of premier wine.
A passion for creativity and craftsmanship flows through these siblings’ veins. The finest wine making has now truly become an art.
Carrol Boyes signature artworks are translated onto the labels of these bottles. The result of this union of art and wine making will become an essential element of well-stocked cellars around the world.
The makers of the Carrol Boyes Collection follow a carefully considered selection process for their wines. Expert winemakers taste, identify and select wines for the various cultivars, offering only the very best of South African wines to our clientele.
Included in the range are a beautiful salmon pink Rose, a fruity Chenin Blanc, citrusy Chardonnay, a dark cherry Merlot, an opulent Cabernet Sauvignon and a sophisticated Fine Red Blend.
Also in the range are two Gift Boxes of either a Shiraz or a Cape Blend, expertly paired with a Carrol Boyes Bottle Stopper - at rest.
