Bon Courage award winning wines have been produced by the Bruwer family for three generations. Andre and his son Jacque have orchestrated the whole estate into a thoughtfully arranged, wine producing operation thus guaranteeing consistent and continuous product perfection. In 2008 the Inkara Shiraz 2005 was declared South Africa's best Shiraz by the Wine Magazine's "Shiraz Challenge". This wine has also received a Veritas Gold, a Diamond Award from the "Winemakers' Choice" and a Gold Medal at "Syrah du Monde" in France.
