Bon Courage Wine Estate


"150 kilometers from Cape Town and alongside the Breede River, you’ll find Robertson’s Valley of “Wine and Roses’.
This picturesque and fertile region is renown for producing wine of great complexity, character and depth. This is due, in part, to ideal climatic conditions and the rich calcareous soils of the area.
On the outskirts of Robertson valley – where two smaller rivers meet the Breede – is the historic and highly successful Bon Courage Wine Estate. The stately Cape Dutch homestead dates back to 1818 and the estate has enjoyed the expert attention and dedication of the three generations of the Bruwer family, who trace their ancestry to France’s Loire Valley. Today, Andre Bruwer and his sons, Jacques & Pieter – André & Jacques both graduates of South Africa’s leading institute of viti- and viniculture, Elsenburg Agricultural College – combine their experience, and love for wine to produce a selection of the country’s finest wines."



"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…"
