Kevin and Kelly, the dynamic duo of Houtbosch are partners in both life and business.


They are the perfect embodiment of passion, drive and ambition.


Originally from Cape Town, Kevin later moved to the UK where he was a

professional musician for 11 years. However, his heart always stayed behind in

South Africa. Kelly was born in Hampstead, London and also worked in the

music industry. The two of them moved back to South Africa when the

opportunity presented itself and George has always been the place they wanted

to call home.

tasting room to tasting room, until we found the type of wine we wanted to

The majority of our wines are grown at vineyards, situated on the foot heels and peaks of the breathtaking Outeniqua Mountains overlooking George. These vineyards are approximately 9 km from the ocean, with a variety of sand stone soils and a cold climate.

Two of our wines are grown from vineyards situated in the scenic town of Calitzdorp, an hour and a half away from George, with Gamka River soil and fertile Gamka sandy loam soils.


We believe that the best way to bring a variety of people together is with a good glass of wine or a ice cold beer. Ideally situated, Houtbosch Wine & Craft Beer is the perfect place for an exciting experience. We aim to stimulate your senses by constantly experimenting with new and interesting food and drink combinations.
