Benguela Cove is one of those places that you drive past on the way to Hermanus, and say to yourself: "I really should stop here one day". I've been saying that for ages, until the day I decided that today was the day to visit Benguela Cove Lagoon Wine Estate. (As a side note: since my first visit, i've been back three times!)
This estate has something for everyone. You can enjoy an amazing High Tea experience at The Tea Terrace, a cruise on the Lady Bonnie pontoon boat, wine tasting, pairings, lunch at Moody Lagoon, and even blend your own wine.
The sculpture collection all around you on the grounds is breathtaking, and Benguela Cove is tastefully designed and an absolute delight to visit.
The owner of Benguela Cove is Penny Streeter (OBE), who is also the benefactor for the Hermanus NIght Shelter.
Penny is such a lovely person, and stops by for a casual chat to everyone.
