Avontuur Estate October 2018 Newsletter


2 October 2018  -  Avontuur Estate

As October arrives we shift into high gear for the Holiday season with many overseas visitors starting to pop in for wine tasting and lunch. On the wine side it’s Pinotage Month, at the stables Var and Oratorio are hard at work and in the paddocks in front of the cellar, visitors stop to admire the mares and their cute foals on the green grass.

SUMMER NOUGAT PAIRING IS BACK
A new pairing featuring some of our new vintages and styles of wine and brand-new Basilei nougat and fudge flavours is waiting for our visitors. Five wines and five sweet treats make this one of the most popular tastings in the area. Only R120 pp. Bookings not required but if you are a group, it’s always better to phone ahead.

PINOTAGE CELEBRATION HITS SA AND AVONTUUR
With Pinotage Day 2018 on Saturday 13 October around the corner, Avontuur Estate between Stellenbosch and Somerset West is planning to join in the celebrations for the whole weekend.

PINOTAGE 2014 ON SPECIAL
From Friday 12 October to Sunday 14 October our very popular Pinotage 2014 is available only from the tasting room at a “Buy- 5-get-1-Free deal”. Take home six bottles, but you only pay for 5. Sounds like a winner!

TUTORED TASTING OF AVONTUUR’S PINOTAGES WITH THE WINEMAKER
On the 13th Winemaker Jan van Rooyen will end his tutored tastings series with a “Pinotage Vertical Experience” which will give fans the chance to enjoy some of Avontuur’s Pinotages from years ago right up to the 2018 vintage. Visit our website to find out more and to book.

AVONTUUR WINES IN JOBURG
Philip Taberer will be representing Avontuur’s wines at the prestigious “Stellenbosch in Sandton” event on 3 and 4 October. Two of our wines were selected - the Dominion Royale Shiraz Reserve 2014 and our delectable 10 year old brandy. For more info visit www.wineroutes.co.za. At the end of the month, we’re once again joining the trend-setters at the next Joburg Wine Club event on the 31st where we will be showing off our wines to a crowd of fun-loving dressed-to-the-nines Gautengers. Visit www.joburgwineclub.co.za. to sign up.

SPRING SPECIAL IN THE TASTING ROOM
Our stunning pink Pinot Noir/Chardonnay is available in the tasting room - and what a deal it is! Buy 5 bottles and get a 6th one free! Pop in and stock up for the warmer days ahead.

STUD FARM
Sires and Brood Mares work equally hard to make Avontuur a success.
With the end of the foaling season now in sight and the breeding season having just started, Pippa and her team are gearing up for daily coverings with Var and Oratorio, who are at the top of their game. As Var is currently leading SA sire and with Oratorio having done so well in last year’s listings too, it’s a busy time of the year for our two main guys! Visit our website to see the new-born foals and their proud moms.
