Benguela Cove Lagoon Wine Estate
We are bringing the band Cloud 9 back to Benguela Cove Lagoon Wine Estate to rock you through the ages. This entertaining band is ready to drum their way into your heart with the favourite rock classics that will have everybody on their feet.

Cloud 9 was established seven years ago and since then rocked their way through all the popular music genres. Founder members John Archer (lead guitar) and Johnny Kreuger (drums) are now joined by DolfLouw on bass guitar.

The band is renowned for their take on classic rock and entertains crowds with music from the ‘60s, ‘70s and ‘80s. If you are a Beatles, Elvis or Dire Straits fan, you are in for a treat. If you crave one of those wickedly popular numbers from Pink Floyd or Rolling Stones they will turn up the volume even more.

With a strong repertoire locally and internationally, Cloud 9 have laid a solid foundation as rock artists, guaranteed to deliver on fun and fabulous tunes.

About the Benguela Collection

Benguela Cove Lagoon Wine Estate is a sister property to four other establishments that complete the Benguela Collection, owned and operated by Zimbabwean born, British/South African Entrepreneur Penny Streeter OBE and her family. These properties also include Nom Nom Eateries and wine bar in Somerset West, Lakeside Lodge and Spa in Sedgefield and two in Sussex, UK - Mannings Heath Golf and Wine Estate and Leonardslee Lakes and Gardens.

Benguela Cove Lagoon Wine Estate is situated at the gateway to the Walker Bay Wine Region in Hermanus, an hour from Cape Town International Airport. Poised on the edge of the Bot River Lagoon, this 200-hectare residential estate and working wine farm is teeming with birdlife and natural fauna and flora with the Atlantic Ocean gracing the horizon.

With 65 hectares under vines and 10 hectares planted to olive groves, it is fast becoming a wine tourism destination. Benguela Cove Lagoon Wine Estate has become renowned for producing elegant cool climate wines, delivering on the expectation of elegance, character and longevity. The estate has been rewarded for its craftsmanship, led by cellar master Johann Fourie.

The 400-ton winery is equipped with advanced technology to aid quality. Modern and traditional equipment and fermenters have been innovatively designed to customise each grape cultivar in their pursuit to make exceptional wines with individual attention.

The estate is planted to a variety of red and white cultivars and clones that benefits from a variety of soil types, slopes and microclimates, allowing the wine team to explore possibilities and stay, whether it may be Sauvignon Blanc, Semillon, Chardonnay, Syrah, Cabernet Sauvignon, Malbec, Cabernet Franc or Petit Verdot.

The offerings vary from bespoke wine tastings in the Tasting Room to a culinary journey at the Moody Lagoon Restaurant, headed by Chef Annie Badenhorst.  Guests are able to explore the vineyards in a luxury safari vehicle, enjoy a cellar tour, or visit the dunes with a relaxing pontoon cruise. For the younger patrons or young at heart, there is an Adventure Golf course complete with pirates, waterfalls and scrumptious delights to choose from on the Blackbeard’s menu. | +27.873570637 |
