Pinotage Day 2018 a chance to celebrate at Avontuur

Local grape varietal a reason for celebration

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.

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!

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 Pinotage’s from years ago right up to the 2018 vintage.  This wine is still in barrel at the moment and recently won the Stellenbosch regional Young Wine Show 2018 Award which is always a great indicator of expected quality when the wine is released in future.

The tasting is from 10h30-12h00 and the price of R130 includes a welcome drink, the tutored tasting, a light lunch and a cup of coffee afterwards. Bookings are essential at winery@avontuurestate.co.za and as we can only accommodate limited numbers, it’s best to book asap.
