Bon Courage Wine Estate
Robertson Wine Valley
A stately Cape Dutch homestead that dates to 1818 is the jewel in the crown of this winery in the Robertson Wine Valley. Surrounding it, the vineyards are exposed to long days in summer and low rainfall in the growing season supplemented by computerised drip irrigation. Night harvesting was introduced in 1986, to keep the fruit cool and in best condition for vinification. The Bruwer family has farmed here for three generations and trace their ancestry to France’s Loire Valley. Today, the vineyards and wines are tended by Andre Bruwer and his sons, Jacques and Pieter.

Our cottage provide the perfect getaway from our busy everyday lives being closer to nature and finding relaxation has never never been easier.
The cottages are part of a large working farm with wine cultivation located in the heart of the beautiful Robertson valley. A valley of wines and roses. Home to some of South Africa’s finest wines and recognized both locally and internationally for their exceptional quality. Vigne cottages are only +/- 1.5 hours drive away from Cape Town.
Visitors come to Bon Courage Estate, not only for the exquisite wines, but also to enjoy a delicious meal, a fresh salad, a creative sandwich or just a cup of coffee at Café Maude.
Here, under the shade of an old African pepper tree, locals and tourists alike, gather to relax and enjoy each others company.
A new indoor restaurant with a big fireplace is also in place should there be a chill in the air on a winter morning.
Don’t be surprised if you hear some chirps. An owl and her chicks have a nest in the tree just above your seat…
