Stellenbosch is South Africa’s second-oldest settlement and was founded in 1679 by Simon van der Stel, who was then the governor of the Cape. The town has become synonymous with winemaking and, today, still produces some of the best quality reds and whites in the country, if not the world. It’s also the home of Barnardt Boyes. Our local head office sits on the charming Dorp (“Town”) Street, which was once the wagon road to Cape Town. At the same time a postcard from history and a trendy strip buzzing with café-goers and art revellers, this avenue in the heart of Stellenbosch embodies the spirit of the town.
Bringing fine art and luxury into everyday life, designer Carrol Boyes’ functional art pieces have made her a household name in South Africa and helped her create a successful global brand. Her high-end homeware and lifestyle items, ranging from beautiful butter knives to elegant side tables, are distributed in some 30 countries and are exclusive, timeless investments. The Carrol Boyes Wines Collection is an extension of the brand and is made for sharing and enjoying as a celebration of the art of living.
