Situated in the heart of the Winelands, Benguela Trading specialises in sourcing and manufacturing decor related products. Many of these products, including Trudeau Boutique Vineyards cheese boards, are made using recycled wood and handcrafted by residents of the Franschhoek community. 

These quality products are found at leading wine farms, bistros, delis, restaurants, retail stores and in the corporate environment.

Most items are made from 100% pure oak, often using old wine barrels as the source material.

The outdoor furniture items are made from a mixture of oak and gum tree.

Boxes and trays are mostly made from 1st grade pine.

The factory shop in Ndabeni / Maitland now gives the public the opportunity to purchase these quality items at a fraction of normal retail cost.


The product range is vast and includes:

Cheese and Baguette Boards
Trudeau boards are hand crafted from French oak wine barrels. These barrels have been used in the process of ageing red wines that are produced in the beautiful Franschhoek valley. The French oak used for these barrels is over a hundred years old and was growing prior to the First World War. Red wine colouring and aroma are still evident. The boards are produced on a wine farm situated on the slopes of the Franschhoek Pass. Each one is uniquely hand crafted. 

These boards are ideal for baguettes, cheese, bread, sushi, smoked salmon etc. Various sizes are available in all the designs.

All furniture in the Trudeau Range is available in either Charcoal or Grey.

Champagne Riddling Racks
The riddling rack was first introduced at the Champagne house of Veuve Clicquot in France. It aided the mass production of Champagne in the early 19th century when Madame Clicquot invented it for the important role of disgorgement. 

New bottles of champagne were stored on their sides in deep cellars. This wine was stored sur lie, or "on the lees" (the dead yeast cells and sediments trapped in the bottle). The amount of time the Champagne spent sur lie had a direct relationship to its quality and flavour complexity. 

After initial fermentation in the bottle, the bottles were inclined at a 45-degree angle on a riddling rack, which is made up of two simple rectangular boards hinged at the top with slanted openings in them. Over the next few weeks on a daily basis, the riddler would rotate every bottle a few degrees which is an art unto itself. Once the yeast cells had collected in the bottle neck, it would have been frozen and the yeast cells disgorged.
