Braais, blossoming wines & boat trips – you’ll want to Spring into it!

Not so long ago, people were doing the rain dance. Now that the vines are pushing out leaves, people are also taking on the trek over the mountains in search of the best spot to soak up those early rays of spring.

Benguela Cove Lagoon Wine Estate is situated at the gateway to the Walker Bay wine region outside Hermanus. It was always envisioned as a destination that will cater to all, from your wine lover, fine dining patron and adventure seeker to those craving a platter laden with delicious treats.

Adventure Golf

Whether you’d like to visit to indulge in your culinary cravings or to see the kids and dogs having a blast, Benguela Cove has certainly grown to become a one stop destination. In fact, it’s the coolest destination the young patrons would say who love to challenge their mateys to a round of Pirate Adventure Golf.

Yet, mom and dad will certainly not be forgotten. While the youngsters are working up an appetite for seriously delicious hamburgers, the adults can sit back on the viewing deck, sipping on Benguela Cove wines. And yes, real men can drink pink so try the latest release of the Lighthouse Rosé 2018. This wine is the perfect pairing for spring – lively and versatile with notes of floras’ and red berries.

Free pontoon cruises

Luckily there is more cold wine where that bottle came from. Stock up in their tasting room and join in for a pontoon cruise. In celebration of tourism month, no one will make you walk the money plank. These 75 minute cruises will be offered as a complimentary service from 10 September until 10 October. How cool is that! Trips on board Lady Bonnie will leave on a daily time schedule between 08:30 and 16:30, Wednesdays to Sundays. Please note the boat is licensed to carry only 12 persons at a time. The skipper will transport you across the lagoon where you will have the chance to wander on a beautiful white beach that separates our estate from the Atlantic Ocean. Check in an hour before your boat trip and stock up some drinks and wines from their cellar door.

National Braai Day

To celebrate Heritage day, we are dedicating the weekend of 23rd & 24th September to what South Africans love most. Benguela Cove will be hosting a fun braai weekend that caters to the whole family. Come join us and order a braai sharing platter that serves four to five people at R450. This includes a spatchcock chicken, braai bread, coleslaw, salad, charred corn and potato salad. Listen to live music from The Riverstone Reggae Band, play a round of adventure golf and enjoy great wine.
