Summer Events Programme at Benguela Cove

Benguela Cove Lagoon Wine Estate

Benguela Cove Lagoon Wine Estate has announced an exciting itinerary of new events planned for visitors this summer.

As December arrives, there are various festive activities on offer. On Saturday, December 2nd, the estate will host a special lunch with music from acclaimed performers James Marais and Monique Cassells for a nostalgic tribute show spanning hits from the ‘50s to the ‘80s. This mini-theatrical experience brings the classics of Elvis Presley, the Beatles, ABBA, Queen and more to life through dynamic performances.

On Saturday, 9th December, visitors can enjoy a Summer Winemakers’ Lunch – always a highly popular event – and later that evening see Elvis Blue play a live concert at the estate. With three platinum and two gold-selling albums and a long list of top 10 hits to his credit, Elvis Blue remains rare in his ability to straddle both English and Afrikaans music genres superbly.

The following weekend, on 22nd December, the first of the outdoor movie screenings begins with a showing of How the Grinch Stole Christmas, kicking off the estate’s Movies Under the Stars series.

There is a lavish Festive Feast Christmas Lunch hosted at Moody Lagoon restaurant, with musical entertainment provided by Luan de Beer. Then on Sunday, 31st December, guests can dance into 2024 at the lively New Year’s Eve Dinner & Disco Party.

The programme of regular events this summer includes indulgent weekends and energetic weeknights. There are Live Music Sundays, with afternoon jazz concerts against the backdrop of the vineyards. Guests can sip award-winning wines while the mellow piano and saxophone complement the gourmet dishes.

Saturdays and Sundays have Bottomless Bubbly Brunch in the Moody Lagoon Restaurant. Sparkling wine and mimosas accompany signature dishes like eggs benedict. With unlimited bubbly and views across the serene lagoon, brunch becomes a celebration.

Visitors who want to extend their stay can book an oceanside villa. Each sleep 6 to 10 guests, with en-suite bedrooms and fully equipped kitchens. They offer a full range of amenities including Wi-Fi, a swimming pool, and a sundeck, within a secure private estate area. There is a backup power system to keep Wi-Fi, TV and lights on during load shedding or blackouts.
