Wine Pairing with Bon Courage Estate

  • Makaranga Garden Lodge 1 Igwababa Road Kloof, KZN, 3640 South Africa (map)

Join us for an exciting evening of gourmet cuisine carefully paired with wines from Bon Courage Estate.

The stately Cape Dutch homestead dates back to 1818 and the estate has enjoyed the attention and dedication of three generations of the Bruwer family since 1927.

The Robertson wine region is today renowned for wines of great depth and concentration, a result of the ideal soil and climatic conditions that prevail in this region. Three rivers run through the estate and have over the years, deposited a variety of different soil types on the farm. Due to this diversification of soil and microclimates, a wide range of grape varietals can thrive in the same area. André Bruwer – the owner and viticulturist – has acknowledged the basic maxim (truth) that good wine is mainly created in the soil and has, therefore, put much effort into matching the correct cultivar to the ideal soil type.

Although ”tradition” plays a big role at Bon Courage Estate, careful but extensive modernisation has allowed André and his son Jacques to combine the best of traditional methods with those of the modern age. This combination allows them greater freedom and flexibility when creating the present and future Bon Courage wines.
