Benguela Cove Wine Estate, trade and media event

An exciting day was planned by Samarie Smith, Brand Business Manager at Benguela Cove Lagoon Wine Estate. Samarie's hard work was rewarded by a big media turn out for the new vintage release led by Johann Fourie head winemaker. Johann's motto is to combine the best efforts of earth and man to produce beautiful wines. Benguela Cove is situated at the oceans edge on the southern coast of South Africa near Hermanus. A very unique spot indeed!

We tasted through the various ranges of which the Vinography Range is especially rewarding, as well as the Catalina Semillon which was definitely the star wine of the day.

We all had our own personal pirate names and a treasure hunt was arranged through the cellar. Unfortunately did not lay their hands on any wine treasures but we were treated to a lovely meal at the spacious restaurant overlooking the lagoon. Not a bad way to end the week!
