Benguela Cove Lagoon Wine Estate is situated on the R43, 18 km outside Hermanus and a mere 75 minute drive from Cape Town International Airport. This 200-hectare security and boating estate is also a working wine farm, renowned for producing outstanding quality from its cool climate vineyards in the Walker Bay. 

The estate is bordered by the natural Bot River lagoon, teeming with fish and birdlife. With the longest stretch of vines facing the Atlantic Ocean, the estate is nudged by the majestic Palmiet Mountains and natural fauna and flora on the other side, nestled amongst vineyards and olive groves where South Africa’s national bird, the blue crane, annually comes to nest.

Owned and operated the entrepreneur Penny Streeter OBE, Benguela Cove is a sister property to four other establishments that complete the Benguela Collection. These include Nom Nom Eateries and wine bar in Somerset West, Lakeside Lodge and Spa in Sedgefield, Mannings Heath Golf and Wine Estate in West Sussex, UK, and the youngest acquisition also in the UK, Leonardslee Lakes and Gardens.
