Bon Courage wine estate in Robertson has well-established credentials when it comes to the production of Méthode Cap Classique, this cellar having won the Amorim Cap Classique Challenge twice before, the Jacques Bruére Brut Reserve 2000 judged best overall in 2004 and the Blanc de Blancs 2007 in 2010. Neatly tucked between the life-sustaining waters of the Breede River and the impressive Langeberg mountain range lies Bon Courage Wine Estate.
This prestigious award-winning family-run estate has been the recipient of many awards and received wide acclaim both locally and internationally for its wines and is truly a versatile estate. The history of the estate goes back to 1927 when the Bruwers bought the farm. It was in October 1983 that owner, André Bruwer changed the farm’s name from Goedemoed to the French translation, Bon Courage, in honour of their French ancestors, and registered Bon Courage as an Estate. Due to the estate’s diversity of soils, a wide range of grape varietals can thrive on the farm and they have therefore put much effort into matching the correct cultivar to the ideal soil type. Bon Courage is highly respected for its ability to produce a diverse collection of award-winning wines across the board, in terms of cultivars, styles, and price-points, all offering consistency in quality. Three generations of the Bruwer family have dedicated their lives to the production of premium wines and today they combine their experience, personal attention and love for wine to produce some of the country´s finest wines.
