The Benguela Cove range of wines have won several awards and continues to receive raving reviews for its distinct taste. The unique maritime conditions of the Walker Bay region ensure that the terroir produces outstanding quality grapes. The warm south-easterly sea breeze is chilled by the Benguela Current flowing up from Antarctica, which cools the grapes at night after warm summer days, irrigated by above-average rainfall for perfect viniculture.
The 200-hectare estate also boasts lavender fields, olive groves and an 18-hole adventure golf course. Vineyard tours, wine tasting on the lagoon and wine tastings and pairings at the Tasting Room make this estate a Cape Winelands gem. Not only are visitors spoiled with a relaxed dining menu from the Benguela Cove restaurant, but they are also able to marvel at the amazing views of the Palmiet Mountains and Bot River Lagoon while sipping on fine estate wines.
