Benguela Cove is part of the Benguela Collection of properties, owned and operated by Zimbabwean born, British/South African Entrepreneur Penny Streeter OBE and her family. Benguela Cove is the jewel in the crown of the collection. This unique maritime Walker Bay farm boasts one of the closest vineyards to the sea and the fresh Atlantic Ocean breezes help to produce exceptional fruits which our award-winning winemaker Johann Fourie and his team turn into fine estate wines. Benguela Cove is the largest producer in Walker Bay.
The estate features its own custom built 400 tonne winery with advanced technology to ensure total control of quality. Our winery equipment and fermenters have been innovatively designed to customise each grape cultivar, as we pursue the journey of treating each cultivar and vineyard with individual attention.
Amongst the lush vineyards and olive groves, the estate finds itself surrounded by a glistening lagoon which hosts the Lady Bonnie pontoon boat. As an added feature to the many facilities on the estate, the pontoon boat is the epitome of maritime leisure.
Join us for an hours relaxed boat trip across the lagoon as you take in the natural biosphere of the estate and the surrounding mountains. Check in an hour before your boat ride and stock up on some wine at cellar door prices. Then all aboard the Lady Bonnie for an hour-long trip before returning back to our tasting room.
