SET in the UNESCO-designated Kogelberg Biosphere Reserve, Benguela Cove Lagoon Wine Estate borders the Atlantic coastline and Bot River lagoon. Guests enjoy panoramic views of the Whale Coast, Palmiet mountains, vineyards, olive groves and lavender fields throughout the 220-hectare wine estate, with a wide range of bird and marine life.
Benguela Cove offers a range of experiences from gourmet dining, lagoon wine tasting cruises, vineyard tours and private wine blending, to children’s entertainment and a music events, with 7km of walking and biking trails.
Estate owner Penny Streeter says: “It is great to see visitors back again. There is social distancing in place of course, and the vastness of Benguela Cove means that guests can spread out and be safe.”
The estate offers a free tasting of Rosé wine, every day until the end of October.
Many of the familiar attractions of the estate are available once again, to appeal to the young and older visitor, as well as the disabled, with good wheel-chair access. Inclusivity includes providing excellent value for money, for almost any visitor budget, says Streeter.
