Avontuur winemaker shares older Cabernet Franc with public

9 May 2018  -  Avontuur Estate

The first tutored tasting presented by Avontuur Estate winemaker Jan van Rooyen and the Estate’s Tasting Room will endeavour to convince participants that Cab Franc as a varietal is a great option for maturation.

Bookings are now open for this coming Saturday 12 May from 10h30 - 12h00 with a tasting attempting to answer the question:  “Can Cabernet Franc age?” 

After being awarded a gold medal in the vintage category of the 2018 Cabernet Franc Challenge and last week’s hugely successful media event with the same wines, the topic is apt. Participants will be privileged to taste some of Avontuur’s vinoteque stock and compare it with currently - on - sale and not - yet - released Cab Francs.

The tasting is limited to 20 participants and includes a welcome drink, the tasting, a light meal and a coffee for only R130 pp.

Bookings are essential and can be made in the tasting room with Ella or Carmen, by phoning the Estate at +27.218553450 or by emailing
