Porseleinberg (which takes its name from the Kaolin clay in the soils here, once used to make Porcelain) is a dynamic side project by Marc Kent of Boekenhoutskloof fame.

The Porseleinberg property was bought by Boekenhoutskloof in 2009 with the aim of producing top quality Syrah grapes for existing product lines. They decided to convert an old shed into a small cellar to produce one wine on the property with the rest of the grapes going to Boekenhoutskloof.

Winemaker, Callie Louw strongly believes that the vineyards benefit from a mixed farming model. They therefore have a couple hundred hens foraging in the vines as well as Nguni cattle and various vegetable crops.
Bearded, baseball cap-wearing renegade Callie Louw, is described by South African wine writer Neil Pendock as, "the Che Guevara of the Swartland". He on the other hand describes himself as a farmer and not a winemaker and claims that excessive "winemaking" in the cellar is merely a cover-up for bad farming!

The solitary wine being produced here has been described by critics as Cape Cornas and the first two releases have rapidly set a benchmark for Swartland Syrah. The property is certified organic and the wine is made in a very old world manner - whole bunch ferment, natural yeasts and minimal sulphur additions. The wine matures in concrete eggs and large foudres (2500L barrels) for 16 to 24 months. Labels are printed in-house on a 1940 Heidelberg plate letterpress.
