When you wake up, and you know it’s gonna be a very cold and chilly Cape Town winter’s day; then you go out, with a smile upon your face and know exactly where to buy that special case. Yup – it might be winter but Benguela Cove Lagoon Wine Estate is still blessed with sunny winter days to lure you into the heart of the Walker Bay.
Curry July – To kickstart the curry celebration, week one (2 – 6 July) introduces the Malaysian Beef Rendang. We recommend the Benguela Cove Syrah 2017 that will echo the spice but stand up with delicious dark fruit.
Week two (9-13 July) will introduce the Murgh Makhani (Butter Chicken). This curry invites the Benguela Cove Sauvignon Blanc 2018 to the table. From 16 to 20 July, chef Annie enters the Thai realm with more subtle spice nuances and the prawn and chicken Thai red curry is the perfect partner to the Lighthouse Rosé 2018. The colours on your plate and in your glass will ignite the union between the two while the subtle blend of hot, salty, sweet and sour flavours will awaken the intricate layers of the rosé.
Curry fans will have to wait untill 23 July when the Lamb Rogan Josh will be served until 27 July. It is here where the Benguela Cove Pinot Noir 2018 will make itself heard. Not only does it awaken that deep flavour of a Rogan Josh but it also displays the elegant yet powerful nature of Pinot Noir. So curry up and make your booking!
August – Ladies – Benguela Cove is ready to celebrate women! On 9th August the team will host another vineyard walk – graced with wine tastings along the way to explore the wines and the vineyards where they are first and foremost made.
Adventure, tea and tee-off times – Dressed warmly, the vineyard and cellar tours remain popular throughout the year, but make sure the little ones are also treated to a game of pirate golf. There are many prizes up for graps until the end of August. Pirate Golf is open every day throughout the school holidays. The Tea Terrace provides the perfect space to celebrate Women’s month and the Benguela Cove team will be thrilled to tailor-make your experience.
