Nestled between two gentle hills on the banks of the Botrivier Lagoon, lies the Benguela Cove Coastal Wine Estate. Located only one hour from Cape Town , 45 minutes from Cape Town International Airport and just 10km from the historical seaside town of Hermanus, this site enjoys majestic views over the lagoon to the Palmiet mountains, which form the spine of the Kogelberg Biosphere. Perfectly positioned to capture these panoramic views, the 210 Hectares of open land, formed by a large cove on the lagoon, offer just the right amount of seclusion and privacy. Open daily for wine tasting.

For my Husband's birthday we had the most amazing lunch at Benguela Cove. Very sophisticated yet relaxed in an awesome dining area with views of the Bot River Lagoon. The food was absolutely delicious paired with wines from the estate. Will definitely be back!
