Benguela Lagoon Wine Estate - Hermanus
Benguela Cove Coastal Wine Estate's rare position ensures that Benguela residents enjoy majestic views over the
lagoon to the Palmeit mountains, which form the spine of the Kogelberg Biosphere. The vineyards which have been
planted across the estate, although young, have already asserted the quality of the terroir with awards starting to
stream in on the maiden vintage. For those who love nature, this is the ultimate location.
Nestled between two gentle hills on the banks of the Botrivier Lagoon, lies the Benguela Cove Coastal Wine Estate.
Located a leisurely one hour from Cape Town , 45 minutes from Cape Town International Airport and just 10km from
the historical seaside town of Hermanus, the site enjoys majecstic 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. At the heart of the estate will be a productive wine farm
housing a cellar where some of the region's finest wines are to be produced.
Only 124 residential opportunities are available in Benguela Cove's residential plan which has been designed by
leading urban architects, dhk, to capture the essence of its rural nature and breath-taking views. By deftly combining
the built and natural fabric, the development succeeds in retaining its charming, rustic character.
Sharing the estate with the residents is the 80 Hectare private wildlife reserve - Grey Rhebok, Duiker, Grysbok and
other indigenous game roam freely through the ecologically significant Renosterveld Nature Reserve.
Rarely does one find this perfect balance between nature and modern living.
"The challenge was to create a place where people can live and enjoy all the benefits of a 'Farm in Africa' without the
management worry or financial liability. This special place where people can create a home and unique privileged
rural lifestyle, will be managed in a manner which will ensure long-term environmental and investment sustainability"
- Developers Chris Drummond & Mike Nixon, on their vision for Benguela Cove.
Benguela Cove Coastal Wine Estate is amongst just a handful of residential lifestyle estate developments in the Cape
to have received full government approval to proceed as planned.
