The Estate is nestled against the pristine Cape Fynbos covered mountain slopes that boasts endless uninterrupted views. Thanks to the fertile soil and unique climate the wine farms, especially over the past two decades, have transformed the area into a wine cornucopia, with vineyards stretching along the entirety of the Valley.

This award-winning venue provides a majestic scene for any occasion and promises to be the best in spectacular venues along the Cape Whale Coast.

We would like to thank you for an excellent function. The wedding went absolutely smoothly and even my very careful music selection was performed completely correctly. The run-up to the wedding was punctual, comprehensive and “stress-free”. In all respects an extremely professional experience. We would recommend Bona Dea with all our hearts. Many greetings, Martin & Maureen 23 March 2019
