This Father's Day, why not treat Dad to a truly special experience? Benguela Cove Wine Estate, ranked #53 in the World's Top 100 vineyards, is the perfect destination for a memorable family outing.
Conveniently located between Cape Town and Hermanus, the estate is easy to find. From the moment you arrive, you'll be greeted with warmth and exceptional service. Relax in our luxurious Tasting Room, boasting panoramic views that are sure to impress. We're open from 09:30 to 18:00 on Father's Day, 16 June 2024, so there's plenty of time to explore.

Something for everyone to enjoy this Father’s Day
Experience the best wine tasting in the Walker Bay Cape Winelands. Awarded Best Cellar Door Experience of the Year by Tim Atkin, Master of Wine, our Tasting Room is truly exceptional. Pair your tasting with fresh oysters, cheese, charcuterie, or delectable desserts, all featuring our estate-produced wines. 

Feeling adventurous? Learn how to open a bottle of Cap Classique with a sabre, just like Napoleon, with our traditional Sabrage demonstration (simply purchase a bottle of our award-winning Joie de Vivre to participate). For a truly unique experience, take the family on a Vineyard Safari. Benguela Cove boasts the longest stretch of ocean-facing vineyards, grown at a mere 3 metres above sea level. This "Blossom to Bottle - Vineyard to Glass" experience lets you follow the journey of our grapes from vine to glass, culminating in a tasting of five estate-grown wines amidst stunning views.
