Overnight? Stay at accommodation in Doringbaai, in Western Cape

In 1925 Dutchman Koos Bleeker first established a crayfish packing factory in Doringbaai. He found Jan Laubscher to assist with the factory’s construction and by 2000 the Laubscher brothers were still faring the area.

Fryer’s Cove was found on part of their farm. After dreaming of a wine estate and studying at Elsenberg Agriculture College, Wynand Hamman and his in-laws established Fryer’s Cove and planted the first three hectares of the vineyard in 1999. The winery’s name comes from the first commercial farmer in the region named Richard Fryer who lived a life invested in the community. To this day, the estate works on creating jobs in the region as well as school sponsorships.

Their wines are marketed under Fryer’s Cove and Wines of Origin Bamboes Bay. Their most recent John Platter awards went to their Bamboes Bay Sauvignon Blanc ’08, Bamboes Bay Merlot ’07, Bamboes Bay Pinot Noir ’07, Fryer’s Cove Pinot Noir ’07 and Bay to Bay Sauvignon Blanc. Due to its location, these wines have a maritime flavour and their slogan reads, "Forged by the earth, tempered by the sea".
