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.

Absolutely gorgeous wine estate on the coast! The wine was excellent and the service was great! We received extra tastings because bottles had been opened for other guests! A very relaxing and fun time!

We dined last night at the Benguela Cove restaurant. The ambiance suggested a top of the range dining experience. But, sadly, the food was very ordinary and the experience not memorable. My beetroot and squash salad starter was poorly presented and lacked dressing. We both...More

I am so glad that I found this pop-up restaurant and had the opportunity to visit, as it was such a cool experience. It is actually located inside the mansion of the owners of the Wine estate, which makes the experience very different. The view...More
